Policy for Accepting Gifts
In accordance with our desire to maximize the benefit of CSU Libraries to our patrons, we have established the following policy regarding acceptance of gifts:
The Library does not accept gifts of books, journals, magazines, and other materials except those that might enhance our unique holdings in Special Collections and Archives. The Libraries still welcomes gifts of books written by CSU faculty which can be sent to the Libraries’ Assistant Dean for Scholarly Communications and Collection Development, Meg Brown-Sica at (970) 491-1838 or Meg.Brown-Sica@ColoState.edu.
The Libraries reviews offers of unique or rare books, personal papers and collections in a separate process conducted by Archives and Special Collections staff members. Materials accepted for the Archives and Special Collections will be processed and made available for use through that department. See Archives & Special Collections about donating your collection.
The Library does not normally accept unsolicited or anonymous gifts of any kind. However, monetary gifts are especially welcome and if you are considering making such a gift please contact Sara Umland, Assistant Director of Development, (970) 491-3728 or Sara.Umland@colostate.edu.
Please feel free to contact us should you need more information.
