Giving to UW Libraries
University of Wyoming Libraries is committed to providing access to outstanding information resources and gladly accepts gifts of books and other library materials with the understanding that materials become Libraries' property once received. Materials not selected for addition to the Libraries' collections will be sold, donated or recycled.
In general, the Libraries does not accept donations of a) media in outdated formats (VHS, audio cassettes, 16 mm film, etc.) and b) unbound journal issues. Before bringing a potential gift to the Libraries, a donor who wishes to provide a large number of journal volumes should contact the Collection Development Office at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss the gift.
How to Make a Gift
UW Libraries asks that all prospective donors consult the appropriate Libraries staff members before making arrangements to have gifts sent or delivered. If you have a special donation situation or questions about the Gifts Policy, contact the Collection Development Office at email@example.com.
Please note that Internal Revenue Service Regulations prohibit UW Libraries from appraising or estimating the value of any gift.
Upon receipt of a gift and contact information, a donor will receive an acknowledgment letter from the Collection Development Office. Electronic gift plates are also available.
Questions regarding gifts to UW Libraries can be directed to the Collection Development Office at firstname.lastname@example.org or 307-766-4296.
