Giving to the Engineering Library

Content section: 



The five engineering and physical sciences libraries at UC Berkeley welcome gifts in all forms. Many private donors and foundations have made contributions toward the acquisition of research materials, the development of services, and the improvement of library spaces for the use of Berkeley faculty and students. This support is very important in sustaining the excellence of our collections and services.

Donating Books and Maps

Gifts of scholarly and professional materials have historically represented a significant element in the development of our outstanding research collections. We welcome individual gifts of maps and books, but we must be judicious in accepting large contributions. Please contact Brian Quigley about any materials you wish to donate.

Donors should be aware that the materials offered may be duplicates or outside the scope of the collection. In these cases, the materials may be sold and the proceeds used to purchase other materials for the collections. Please see the Book Donations Policy for more information on book donations including tax and appraisal considerations.

The University of Buffalo Libraries also maintain a list of International Donation Programs that you may want to consider for your book donations.

Financial Gifts – Contribute Online or By Mail

Financial support provides funding for books, maps, online resources, special projects, or library space improvements. Gifts may be unrestricted or support a specific library program or discipline. Contributions of any amount are welcome. Please see the Ways of Giving page for more information on the many ways to donate to the libraries including memorial gifts, endowments, and planned gifts.
