| ||The Amelia V. Gallucci-Cirio Library welcomes gifts of appropriate materials from the community that may provide valuable additions to the library's collections. || |
| ||Thank you for your decision to donate materials to the Amelia V. Gallucci-Cirio Library. All donated materials are expected to meet the same standards of quality and relevance to the collection as all newly acquired titles. Donations should support the curriculum and the mission of the library as well as meet established collection development guidelines and policies. All gifts will undergo review by professional library staff in charge of collecting for the particular subject area that the material falls under. In the event a reviewer is unsure whether certain material should be added to the collection, other librarians and teaching faculty will be consulted for their views on appropriateness. The library reserves the right to dispose of any gift materials that it considers not to meet the library's collection needs and policy guidelines. The library may dispose of the unaccepted material in a variety of different ways, including: donating to other libraries; donating to local, nonprofit organizations; donating to academic departments; giving to individual faculty, staff, or students; as well as discarding/throwing away. If the donor would like to redeem any materials not being considered for addition into the collection, please indicate this preference on the form below.
If it is the wish of the donor, items that are added to the collection may be recognized as a gift with the attachment of a book-plate stating the donor’s name.
***It is the responsibility of the donor to have a monetary appraisal of his/her gift done before it is given to the library, if it is assumed the gift has a large monetary value and if an appraisal is so desired by the donor. This is in compliance with the Tax Reform Act of 1984 and the American Research Libraries’ Statement on Appraisal of Gifts.
***All gifts of money must first be discussed with the Interim Dean of Amelia V. Gallucci-Cirio Library, Sean Goodlett.
