Please contact us, either by phone (0121 414 5828) or send a brief description of your material to firstname.lastname@example.org
We welcome the thoughtfulness of people who offer to donate books and other material to the University Library. However, each year we receive thousands of unsolicited donated items, not all of which are suitable for adding to our stock. They wait many months for assessment.
We are now asking prospective donors to contact a member of Library Services staff before sending us material, so that we can decline the offer if it is obvious that the material would be unsuitable for us. This saves both your time and costs, and ours, and enables us to handle the material which we do wish to consider for stock more quickly.
We are unable to answer queries on the progress of unsolicited material which has been sent without prior arrangement. Such material cannot be returned, and may be discarded.
