Gifts to Scarborough Library

Scarborough Library appreciates the continued interest
in the resources and services of our collections and facility.

Material Donations

Donors wishing to make a material donation to the library should bring the donations to the Public Services Desk located inside the main entrance of the library. The donor will then complete a Scarborough Library Donations Policy form. Although the library acknowledges the receipt of gifts, by law it cannot provide assessments of their monetary value.

The library accepts donations of library materials for review. Items are accepted with the understanding that they will be handled in the best interest of the institution. Decisions to add gift materials to the collections or to discard them are made on the basis of the library's Collection Development Policy, which is designed to support the University's academic programs.

Questions regarding donations of materials should be addressed to the Dean of the Library at 304-876-5312.

Please Note: Donations that are left outside the library when the library is closed will be discarded.
