Collection Development

Where to Donate

Gift Policy and Procedure

The University/College Library welcomes the donation of gifts and funds which will enhance the collections, facilities, and services. The acceptance of gifts is contingent upon the appropriateness of the gift to the library’s holdings, donor restrictions, and the physical condition of the donated material.

The Library reserves the right to accept or reject gifts, in whole or in part. The library also reserves the right to dispose of unwanted portions of a gift which do not meet the collection development criteria. Gifts offered with restricting conditions will be accepted only at the discretion of the Dean of the Library.

To protect the donor and the University/College Library as interested parties, the Library will not appraise gift materials. This policy is endorsed by the American Library Association and the Association of College and Research Libraries. If desired, appraisals by a qualified third party should be sought by the donor. The acceptance of a gift which has been appraised by the donor or a third party does not in any way imply endorsement of the appraisal by the Library.

The Library accepts cash donations to be used for the purchase of library materials, equipment, or services, and will honor the donor wishes regarding the nature of the materials or services to be purchased when such purchases are in accordance with the needs of the Library.

If you wish to donate materials to the Library, please contact the Collection Development Librarian at (954) 201-6330.
