Appraising your books or personal collections

An appraisal can help determine the fair market value of materials for purposes of negotiating a sale or a tax write-off associated with donating the materials. Woodson Research Center (WRC) suggests the following resources to help you begin conducting research on a suitable appraiser for your collection. WRC cannot provide appraisals because it would be a legal conflict of interest.
