We very much appreciate all offers of gifts. However, before sending us any items, you may find it useful to read the following information.
In general the following factors are considered:
The Library regularly reviews its collections and reserves the right to dispose of items which do not meet these factors at any time.
All donations are accepted without obligation to the donors and on the understanding that upon receipt the material becomes the property of the University Library.
Larger donations will normally be dispersed throughout the Library rather than kept in separate, discrete collections.
