Gifts-in-Kind Donations of Materials to the UWM Libraries

The Libraries welcome gifts of academic materials to augment our collections. These donations are retained at the Libraries’ discretion; generally duplicates are not added. Items not added are given to the Friends of the Golda Meir Library for its annual booksale. Proceeds from the sales supplement the Libraries’ acquisition funds. We are unable to return items not added to the Libraries’ collections.  Below are guidelines to consider before donating materials.

The following types of materials are accepted for consideration:

  • Scholarly books supporting UWM’s curricula or research;
  • Musical scores.

We accept materials of general interest on behalf of the Friends of the Golda Meir Library for its annual booksale.

The following are examples of material generally not accepted by the Libraries:

  • Issues of periodicals or journals;
  • Newspapers and magazines;
  • Books in poor physical condition;
  • Marked up books.

Cds, DVDs, and other media may be accepted; please contact us with questions.
