We always appreciate it if people offer to donate books
and other items to the Library. However,
space in the Library is limited and we need to be very selective about the
items we accept.
Please don't be surprised or upset if we politely decline
your kind offer.
If you wish to donate up to 10 items, you may bring them
to the Library without prior arrangement.
Please bring them to the Help Zone or Enquiry Desk and we will pass them
to the appropriate Academic Liaison Librarian; they will consider whether to
keep them for the Library or not.
(more than 10 items)
Please contact the relevant Academic
Liaison Librarian (or firstname.lastname@example.org
if you are unsure which Academic Liaison Librarian to contact) and provide
details of what you would like to offer to the Library. Please do not bring donations of more than 10
items to the Library without confirmation from one of the Academic Liaison
Librarians that the donation has been accepted and without prior arrangement
for receiving the delivery.
We are more likely to accept donations and add items to library
if they are relevant to the University’s
teaching and research
if they do not duplicate what we already have
(except for material in particularly high demand)
if they are the latest editions of a textbook
if they are recently published scholarly
if they are in good condition
What will happen
to your donations
The items will be reviewed by the relevant Academic
Liaison Librarian. They may be added to
the Library’s stock (but they may be withdrawn from stock in future if no
longer required). We may pass your
donations to an alternative suitable organisation for re-sale, re-use or
recycling (and any money received from re-sale will be retained by the
accept donations of books.
