Gifts for the Library

Gift Policy

EKU Libraries accept donations of materials that support the teaching and research needs of the University community.  Gifts with limitations or restrictions will not be accepted.  The Libraries are free to exercise all privileges of ownership of the materials and reserve the right to retain or discard them.


Generally, the Libraries will accept material relevant to the academic mission of EKU.  Gifts must be in good condition and reasonably current (with the exception of rare or special books).  The Libraries cannot accept textbooks, newspapers, magazines, or any material deemed not appropriate to an academic library.

Consistent with legal guidelines, the EKU Libraries staff cannot make appraisals or valuations of materials for tax or other purposes and cannot accept a donation with a stipulation that a tax appraisal be included.
