学院 is grateful to all those who have made donations of materials to the 图书馆. These enable the 图书馆 to grow its important collection and to support research and teaching in the College.
Conditions of Acceptance
Due to constraints on storage and the demands on staff time to catalogue and conserve materials, the 图书馆 must be selective in what it acquires. Some collections or items may also be more appropriately offered to other repositories.
Donors should be aware that
The 图书馆 is likely only to consider material that falls within the scope of its collection development policy. This includes material supporting teaching and research, items published by Old Members and materials connected to the history and wider links of the College.
The 图书馆 does not normally accept material in poor physical condition.
The 图书馆 reserves the right to deal with donated material as it deems appropriate and to dispose of material at the time of receipt or at a later date.
The donor warrants that they own the physical property in the donation.
If items are accepted, then they become the property of the College.
If appropriate, the 图书馆 will also liaise with the Old Members’ Office.
提供了 of material should be sent to the Librarian via email@example.com. If a number of items are proposed for donation, then a list should be supplied. A donations agreement may be suggested for a larger donation or a donation of archive or manuscript material.
