Donations of Books and Periodicals

The James White Library accepts gifts from the public of books and other kinds of information resources. All library acquisitions are made according to the library's collection development policies, which call for addition of materials that support the university's curricula.

Materials which meet the policy guidelines are added to the appropriate collection. Duplicates and other materials that the library cannot use are disposed of according to the following priorities:

Periodicals may also be accepted, but many, such as National Geographic and Reader's Digest, cannot be accepted.

For donations, please contact the Office of Resources Development. The library cannot legally give donors an estimate of value for their donation. However, the Technical Services Department will be happy to provide a letter of receipt.
