Donating Items

The Wahlstrom Library welcomes donations of library items (including books and/or DVD’s) from faculty, students, alumni, and the general public.

Leisure reading like paperbacks can be left on the Leave a Book, Take a Book shelves surrounding Café Scribe.

The addition of specific items to the collection is contingent upon approval by subject liaison librarians. We are especially interested in newer items in technology, computer science, and health science subject areas. We ask that items being considered for donation are clean, without extensive highlighting, and have unbroken covers/bindings.

The library reserves the right to re-donate or offer freely on our donation shelf located on the first floor of Wahlstrom Library any items which do not fit our current collection development policy criteria. If you would like a letter from the University acknowledging your donation, please leave your name and address with the staff at the Information Desk on the 1st floor to whom you give the donation.
