Gifts of Materials to the Library 

The library is pleased to accept gifts of books, recordings and other library materials and grateful for the consideration shown by donors. However, because of limitations on staffing, shelving space, and the need to maintain collections which directly support the curricular needs of the college, donations can only be accepted under certain conditions:

  1. The item is appropriate in subject matter to the disciplines taught on the campus and to the liberal arts in general.
  2. The value of an item(s) is determined by the donor, i.e., the library cannot appraise the value of material donated.
  3. The donated item is handled at the discretion of the library faculty and staff who will determine appropriateness of subject, condition of the individual items, whether or not any individual items will be added to the collection, and/or disposal of the item to book sales, other libraries, or recycling.
  4. Material donated will not be returned to the donor.
