The Library is always happy to consider donations of books, journals, manuscripts and University memorabilia, although it reserves the right to be selective and to decide whether or not to retain such material for stock or to dispose of it according to Library Collections Policy.
Potential donors of significant collections or items are invited to contact Dr Joseph Marshall, Head of Special Collections (Joseph.Marshall@ed.ac.uk). For donations to the general collections, please contact the relevant Academic Support Librarian.
A recent edition of the Edit online supplement (a newsletter for alumni) features a excellent article highlighting nine of the incredible treasure that have been donated to the University over the years: Gifted Treasures.
Further information is available from the Library website.
