Gifts and Donations


University Libraries Gift Policy

The University of Oklahoma Libraries is no longer able to routinely accept most donations of books and other materials for the general circulating collection. This change in policy is due to serious space constraints and the high cost of sorting, reviewing and processing donated material. Please consider other options for sharing your materials, such as public libraries, used bookstores, or charitable organizations such as Better World Books.

If you feel your potential gift is of critical research interest to OU Libraries, such as rare or unique items, please provide us with a description and characterization of the material via any of the following contact points:
