Donation of books and other resources

The Royal Roads University Library welcomes offers to donate books and other resources. However, we are not able to accept all donation offers. We consider donations that align with the collection development needs of the library, including materials that:

  • are relevant to the current or anticipated academic requirements of university programs
  • complement the current library collection in depth rather than breadth

Additionally, we do not normally accept conditional donations.

What happens when a donation is dropped off?

Donations dropped off at the library without pre-authorization are reviewed against the library’s collection needs.

  • Any donations that are not accepted for donation may be retrieved by the donor within two weeks of initial drop off.
  • Otherwise, we will dispose of donated materials through donation to another institution, sale, or recycling. Proceeds from book sales go toward the United Way.
