Gifts / Donations Policy - BML

UC San Diego faculty wanting to donate materials to the Biomedical Library must contact Jeff Williams, (858) 822-2218 or Faculty must discuss their desire to donate material to the Libraries' collection before donations will be accepted.  In most cases, faculty must provide a list of the material for review.

Donated materials may be accepted with the understanding that materials become the property of The Regents of the University of California. In turn, the Libraries may use, keep, or dispose of items at its discretion.

The Biomedical and Medical Center Libraries generally do not accept donations from individuals not affiliated with the university, nor from students or staff that are not donating materials on the behalf of UCSD faculty.

Unsolicited materials abandoned at a service desk or facility will likely be recycled at the discretion of Libraries staff.
