Collection Development Policy Statement: Mathematics/Statistics

Donations

The Main Library welcomes donations for the Mathematics collection. Financial contributions are placed in an endowment fund to purchase print or non-print resources. Please contact the Mathematics Librarian for specific information.

Materials are accepted with the understanding that not all items received may be added to the collections. Because of space limitations; condition (materials requiring preservation are not acceptable); and the objectives of the collection development policies, the Libraries reserve the right to dispose of unneeded materials by sale, as give-aways, or as exchange or gift to other libraries. The Libraries may ask to pre-select needed items before donations are delivered to the libraries. Donor may be asked to list journal titles and volumes so that the Libraries can check holdings before accepting journals. The following types of material are normally not accepted: outdated textbooks, paperbacks, and books in poor condition. Donors are encouraged to discuss potential donations directly with a representative of the Libraries prior to bringing in their contributions.
