Collection Development

Gifts and Memorial/Honorarium Donations

Gifts are accepted with the understanding that the library may dispose of them or add them to the collection at its discretion and use the same criteria as purchased materials. The appraisal of gifts for tax purposes is the responsibility of the donor. A letter acknowledging the donation, but assigning no value, will be sent upon request.

A monetary donation is required before a memorial or honorarium book can be purchased. Exceptions are made when the donor is an employee of or otherwise affiliated with the College. Recommendations for specific titles or subjects are accepted from the donor; however, the Dean of Library Services will make the final determination. Donations of materials in memory or in honor of individuals are discouraged, but, if accepted, are evaluated according to previously stated policy.

The Associate Vice President for Institutional Advancement is notified of the receipt of all gifts and donations.
