Donating Books

How to Donate Books

The Central Library welcomes the donation of books that are in accordance with our donation policy.
Prospective donors should complete a donation application form, supplying all relevant information (including book title, author, edition, and ISBN), and send the form to Library General Affairs, Administration, Central Library. Upon receipt of your application, we will inform you of our acceptance (or otherwise) of your donation. Donated items that are unaccompanied by a donation application form will be disposed of at our sole discretion.

Acceptance Criteria

On the Disposal of Your Donation

  • Please leave it up to the library to decide what to do with your donation. We may dispose of unwanted donations by means of donation to, or exchange with, other institutions, or we may pursue other means of disposal. Even after accepting a donation, we may decide to donate, exchange, or dispose of the item.
  • Depending on the content of the book, we may decide to transfer your donation to a library on another Kindai campus.
  • It may take some time to decide whether we can accept your donation or not and/or which library will host your donation.

Other Information

  • We ask donors to pay any shipping/postage costs.
  • As a general rule, we do not send donors thank-you cards or acceptance notifications.
