In general, donations are very welcome, and we are grateful for the generosity of our readers. The Bodleian Libraries frequently receive gifts of scholarly history books from faculty and college teaching staff.
If you consider your donation of individual books to be appropriate for the History Faculty Library collection, then please contact the Bodleian History Librarian or HFL Librarian-in-Charge. If you consider your donation of individual books to be more appropriate for the Bodleian Library, then email the Bodleian History Librarian directly.
The libraries reserve the right to dispose of donated books, should they no longer be required. We will normally ask whether you would like us to return and/or try to find alternative locations for surplus materials. Large donations will not be taken without prior consultation.
