The AU Library welcomes and appreciates contributions of gifts-in-kind. Donors of books and other materials strenghten collections that support the teaching and research activities of the university.
Any book the library accepts becomes the property of American University Library. The library reserves the right to retain the gift, to determine how it will be cataloged and where it shall be housed. Books the library cannot use may be distributed to other libraries in the United States or overseas. The library acknowledges the donation of gifts-in-kind by a letter. The library is prohibited from appraising the dollar value of any donated book.
Inquiries about donating books may be directed to:
