Cleaning out your office?

The Library welcomes donations and has developed the following procedures to facilitate processing for gift volumes:

All donors will need to fill out the Library Gift Materials Form and bring it along with the donation. It is helpful to the Library if you can provide an estimated value of the materials donated on that form.

Donations of up to one box of materials may be dropped off at the Circulation Desk.

Donors with more than one box of books should call ahead in order to make arrangements to confer with the appropriate subject specialist prior to bringing donations to the Library. In the absence of the appropriate subject specialist, donors should contact Ed Goedeken, Collections Program Coordinator, at (515) 294-3311. He will work with you to make arrangements for subject specialist review.

**Please note: For gift collections in excess of fifty volumes, we may ask to review the collection prior to acceptance and may request a list of titles be provided. If the gift does not match our needs, we will attempt to refer you to a more appropriate repository.

Donors with materials considered for Special Collections or the University Archives, should contact Tanya Zanish-Belcher, Head, Special Collections, 403 Parks Library, Iowa State University, Ames, Iowa 50011-2140, telephone (515) 294-6648; or the Special Collections Reading Room, (515) 294-6672.
