  • The Library maintains a list of booksellers and other vendors who supply library material.
  • Companies that wish to be on the suppliers list in order to be contacted for quotations should email the Resource Management Unit at

Book Donation – Conditions of Acceptance

Book gifts that are of good physical condition and support the current teaching and research programs of the university will be gladly accepted for review.

  • The Library reserves the right to dispose of gifts not taken into the collection.
  • Acknowledgment of receipts will be given only at the request of the donor.

Large Volume of Donation

  • To help the Library check against duplicates and assess relevance, donors are encouraged to prepare a title list.  The list should include bibliographic details such as author, title, edition, publisher, and publication year.
  • When appropriate, a bookplate will be affixed to each of the donated items as a token of appreciation.

Media Donation

Due to change of user needs, the Library no longer accepts donation of physical media items such as CD, DVD, VCD, and Blu-ray.
