Due to space constraints, we do not encourage the donation of books to the library. As a general principle, we can only accept textbooks currently in use by students or monographs relevant to current research. However, please see the information on Pass the Book below as a viable alternative.
Donations of archival or printed collections with a historical significance will be considered by Special Collections and Archives staff according to separate criteria.
Books must be unmarked and in good condition. All donations must be approved by the Liaison Librarian for the subject. Before considering a donation to the Library, please use this form to contact the relevant Liaison Librarian, who will assess whether the books are relevant to our collections and if we can accept them. More information is contained in the Library Collection Development and Management Policy.
You can also donate unwanted textbooks or other books for students' benefit through our Pass the Book scheme. Any books brought to the library without approval by the Liaison Librarian will be given to Pass the Book. You can use Pass the Book either to make your books freely available or to sell them to students.
