Over the coming months the Library will be turning its attention to completing critical building and organisational projects. As a result, offer response times may be affected. The Curatorial and Acquisitions teams appreciate your patience and understanding during this time. Offers will be assessed in line with our the Library’s recently revised Collection Development Policy.
Once you submit this form you will receive a system generated response and tracking number. A member of our Acquisitions team will contact you within two weeks regarding your offer.
Please submit your offer or enquiry prior to sending any material offered for consideration.
Before you submit your offer
Have you read our Donation FAQs? They contain lots of helpful information about the Library’s collecting scope, the donation process and how donations are used by the Library.
