Materials Gifts Policy
UT Libraries will no longer accept unsolicited gifts of materials due to staffing constraints, lack of appropriate storage space, and the limited number of donations historically added to the collection (most gift titles are already in the collection). Staff will refer potential donors to other appropriate venues that may accept gift collections.
Exceptions to this policy include significant items of major interest and need to the University from UT faculty or other donors. The latter would be determined on a case-by-case basis by the Dean of Libraries in consultation with appropriate library faculty and the Director of Library Development.
