If you wish to make a financial donation, please see the Giving to the Library page.

The Odum Library is happy to accept donations of books, journals or media.

In selecting materials to donate, please do not include damaged materials. The library generally does not accept textbooks or other expendable print materials such as lab manuals. Single issues or scattered runs of magazines and journals are usually not useful to the collection. Media such as CDs, and DVDs should be in good condition with original packaging. When you donate materials please fill out the short Gift Record.  The Gift Record addresses basic questions that will assist us in processing your gift.


Please note that not all donated materials may be added to the collection.  If you wish non-added materials returned to you please indicate that on the Gift Record, otherwise unused materials will be disposed of at the library's discretion.  The library does not place a value on donated materials.

If you have questions about gifts, our gift policy, or bringing gifts to the library you may call Ken Smith, Head of Acquisitions and Collection Development (245-3734).
