The library accepts gifts or donations [books, media and in-kind materials*] at the discretion of the Director, and only when they strengthen our collections in support of the institutional mission and goals. The donor should be aware of the following caveats:
The library will supply or confirm an itemized list of approved gifts/donations that acknowledges receipt, but does not appraise value.
Through acceptance, the donor acknowledges that a gift/donation in its entirety becomes part of the collections and will be managed solely by the department through its curatorial standards. Criteria for removal include: format, subject matter, and physical condition.
The department is not obligated to acknowledge or retain any unsolicited items.
*Monetary donations to the college are managed through Institutional Advancement.
