The Library welcomes gifts and accepts them with the donor’s understanding that the materials are evaluated by the same standards as purchased items. A donor form documents all donations. Staff time for processing, age of material, format, topic, physical condition and copyright are considered when evaluating donated items for inclusion in the collection.
We are not able to accept donations of instructor review copies of textbooks, workbooks/lab manuals/study guides, case studies, photocopies, and items marked up with pen, pencil or highlighter or otherwise damaged. The Library has the right to discard any donations that are not suitable for the collection. Donated items that will not be incorporated into the collection will be given to another library, donated to charity, made available for free to the college community, or discarded. If we are unable to include your donated item and you wish it to be returned to you, kindly let us know.
