Donating books to the library

  3. Donating books to the library

Library Services strategy focuses on the development and promotion of high quality electronic resources to support teaching, research and scholarship. This requires a managed de-commitment from print collections.

Donations of print materials cannot therefore be accepted (except in exceptional cases)*

* in these circumstances a case will need to be made in writing to the Associate Director of Library Services (Academic and Student Services), endorsed by an Associate Dean of the Faculty concerned.

Electronically published OU research outputs should be deposited routinely within the Open Research Online (ORO) Database.

We regret that Library Services is unable to return unsolicited donations. Unsolicited donations sent to Library Services will be disposed of.
