Library Donations

Limitations on physical space and budget considerations require the University Libraries to actively manage the development and configuration of all formats (analogue and digital). In assessing potential additions to the collections, we must take account of a range of considerations, including overall cost of stewardship, licence and access arrangements, conservation, storage space, cataloguing resource, digitisation costs, shelving, promotion and other lifecycle costs.

Once a collection of donated material has been received, we reserve the right to deal with it as we see appropriate, e.g. transfer, relegation or disposal. Financial contributions towards the cost of e.g. cataloguing, conservation and storage are encouraged and will be discussed with the donor.
