Giving to the Library

The George A. Smathers Libraries welcome the opportunity to accept gift donations of books and other materials that are academic in nature, enhance existing collections, are in good physical condition, and can be added to the Libraries’ collection. Acquisitions & Collections Services Department / Gifts Program staff and subject area specialists / library staff will communicate and work together to set parameters for accepting donations for addition to the collection. For truly unique or outstanding donations, please contact the Subject/Area Specialist so they can evaluate the scope and quality of the materials.  Gifts Program staff and subject specialists will work together to schedule a pick-up of materials at your home or office or arrange other delivery methods.
