Library donations, gifts and bequests policy
The Library is happy to accept donations of material that fall within the scope of our Information Policy. This is to ensure that the material will support the teaching and research of the College.
All donations become the property of Royal Holloway, University of London.
Material will only be accepted with the prior agreement of the Academic Liaison Team so please contact the relevant Information Consultant to discuss your donation. The following criteria will be used to assess the material before it can be accepted for inclusion in our collections:
- Relevance of the material to the College’s teaching and research
- Whether the material is already held
- The condition of the material
- The cost to catalogue and process the material
Material ultimately not added to the Library’s collections is sent to reputable booksellers and any money received is put towards purchasing new material.
Financial donations to support the purchase, storage, cataloguing or conservation of the collections are also warmly welcomed. Please consult the Director of Library Services.
