Gifts and Out-of-Print Materials
Gifts are an important complement to our collection. We welcome gifts of books
and journals and possibly other library materials that are appropriate for our
collection. Copies of works by faculty are particularly appreciated.
Please call the Head of Acquisitions to review your donation:(678)839-6498.
We will attempt to learn as much as possible about the materials offered. If the
materials do not appear appropriate for the collection as defined in our
collection policies, we may suggest other libraries for the donor to contact.
If we accept a donation, we clearly state to the donor that we may not add all
the materials to our collection and that we will attempt to donate items we do
not need to other area institutions. Donated items may be distributed throughout
the library's collection according to established criteria.
The IRS does not allow us to appraise gift donations. Donors who plan to include
their gifts in income tax deductions must submit a list of items with the
author, title, and price of each item.
We acknowledge in writing all donations of materials. University Development
is also notified of donations.
A donation of $2,500 to University Development provides funding, in perpetuity,
for the annual purchase and processing of a library book to be placed in the
Ingram Library. Funds for this gift may be pledged over a four-year period with
the first book being placed when the $2,500 has been received. A $75 gift will
provide for a onetime book purchase. The honoree's name, as well as the
donor's name will be appropriately designated in the front of the book.
You may call University Development at (678)839-6582.
The Library normally does not purchase or replace out-of-print materials unless
