Dancing with the Devil: Gifts in Kind

Toronto Metropolitan University Library & Archives is pleased to welcome Michael Moir (University Archivist and Head of the Clara Thomas Archives and Special Collections at York University) on Friday, November 4 from 10:00-12:00 noon in LIB72 for a discussion entitled “Dancing with the Devil: Gifts-in-Kind, Monetary Appraisal, and Cultural Property.”

It’s valuable, it’s free and someone wants to give it to your institution. Sounds like a winning proposition, right? It may be, but as the Trojans discovered long ago, gifts can lead to unexpected consequences. Find out what you need to know about accepting gifts-in-kind to ensure a happy outcome for both donor and institution.

The event will begin at 10:00 with a meet and greet with light refreshments. The presentation will run from 10:30 until noon and will include time for Q&A. The presentation is open to all. We hope to see you there!

If you have questions about the event, please contact Joanna Beyersbergen at or (416) 979 5000 ext. 4982.
