Gifts-in-Kind Policy

The Library actively solicits and accepts gifts to enhance its collections.

Books: New books or additional copies of owned books are selected for addition to the Library collection after consideration of the gifts' physical condition and usefulness. In all cases, the Collections Department and/or Subject Specialist librarians implement the selection criteria stated in the collection policies when considering gifts and their placement in the collections.

Journals: Replacement copies of journals are always welcome. Long runs of journals to which the Library does not currently subscribe will only be considered if extremely relevant to current programs and research. Gift subscriptions may be considered but only if unconditional and with some guarantee of ongoing support from the donor.

Policies for Accepting Gifts-in-Kind:

The following considerations should apply to the acceptance of gifts-in-kind to the Library:

  • The Library will not accept gifts that are not useful for the purpose of study and research by the AUC community.
  • The Library owns the right of ownership once gifts are donated by the donor. Donations are irrevocable.
  • The Library may dispose of gifts to its best advantage. Such disposition may include:
    • To retain the gift in the Library
    • To transfer it to other departments of the University.
    • To donate gifts that are useful to other national libraries.
AUC Libraries Gifts-in-Kind Policy is in accordance, and comes under, the AUC Gift Acceptance Policy.
