The Wilson Dental Library gratefully considers donations of new or old materials. Items of all types are welcome, including textbooks and leisure reading, hardcovers and paperbacks. We may accept gifts of journals that do not duplicate existing library holdings.
Titles of scientific or significant historical value, which are not already owned by the library, are added to the collection. Books which are not added are offered for sale at the library’s book sale; funds from the sale are used to purchase new books. The library will send you a written acknowledgment and a detailed inventory. IRS regulations explicitly disallow monetary appraisals by the library.
Please bring items you wish to donate to the Loan Desk of the library and please include the contact information for the letter of acknowledgment. The library is not able to pick up books and cannot reimburse shipping costs, but if you call in advance, we will provide directions to the library’s loading dock, and help to unload the books.
Questions concerning book donations should be directed to Annie Hughes, Reference Librarian / Information Specialist.
