University of Texas at Arlington

Donate Materials

Gifts of books, manuscripts, musical recordings, and other materials, made outright or by bequest, allow the Library to make valuable additions to their collections. Gifts of items in good condition and compatible with equipment now being used are welcome.

All gifts of books, equipment, or other library material are accepted subject to the approval of the University of Texas System Board of Regents. The University reserves the right to determine retention, location, cataloging treatment, and other considerations relating to use or disposition of gift material.  Saleable titles that are not accepted for inclusion in the Library's collections will be sent to a book resale company, with proceeds from the sale going to the Library.

The appraisal of a gift to the UT Arlington Library for income tax purposes is the responsibility of the donor. The UT Arlington Library cannot appraise gifts received. Donors may wish to discuss prospective donations, appraisals, and tax considerations with appropriate financial or legal advisors.
