The library appreciates gifts of books, audiovisual materials, and periodicals, including duplicate titles. The library retains the right to refuse materials that do not meet the library's selection criteria or have processing costs that exceed their worth. The library maintains unconditional ownership of donations and makes the final decision as to their disposition.
The library reserves the right to decide the conditions of display, location and means of access to the gift materials. Items not added to the collection are offered to other libraries, sold at library book sales, or are treated as weeded items. Donors may request that the library return materials the library does not utilize.
Delivery of gifts is the responsibility of the donor.
If the donor wishes to use the gift as a tax deduction, he or she is responsible for obtaining an appraisal from an appropriate professional outside the Chalmer Davee Library. The library provides the donor with a letter acknowledging gifts, but cannot legally estimate their value.
