The Drexel University Libraries gratefully accept gifts-in-kind including books, journals, manuscripts, conference proceedings, DVDs, and videotapes that fall within the scope of our collection development policies and enhance our collections. Due to space constraints, we encourage potential donors to speak with our subject specialist librarians about the appropriateness of possible gifts. (see Hagerty Library Collection Development Policy, 2006 Revision; Health Sciences Libraries Collection Development Policy, 2007 Revision.)
Donations are accepted with the understanding and agreement that the donated material becomes the legal property of the Drexel University Libraries. The libraries may use, keep, or dispose of materials at its discretion. In most cases, material that is added to the collection will become an integral part of the Libraries' collections and will be available to all patrons in accordance with our regular circulation practices.
Due to the higher level of stewardship that such gifts entail, any potential gifts of special or rare materials should be discussed with the Director of Libraries.
In accordance with Internal Revenue Service regulations, the Drexel University Libraries do not assess or assign value to gifts-in-kind, though gifts are acknowledged in writing.
The Drexel University Libraries appreciate the generosity of those faculty, students, staff, alumni/ae, and friends who help build the intellectual store of knowledge that supports the institution's educational mission.
