Gifts & Donations


Donations to the UNT Dallas Library

Gifts or donations must meet the Library's Collection Development Policy criteria and be evaluated by the University Librarian and/or a staff Librarian to determine its usefulness to the Library.

Acceptable items:

  • Books must be relevant to the UNT Dallas curriculum and/or support the teaching, research, and service needs of students and faculty.
  • Textbooks or course-related books not older than 3 years.
  • Non fiction books and media materials must be approved and evaluated for relevance. Please contact the University Librarian.
  • Items must be in new or like new condition.

Items not accepted:

  • Items in poor physical condition (i.e. brittle paper, water damage, writing or highlighting on the pages, torn and/or missing pages, mold etc.)
  • Newspapers, magazines, print periodicals or journals*

*A great number of journals are available through the Library's electronic resources. Print journal collections require large amounts of space and are infrequently used; therefore, large donations are not accepted.

Special Collections:

  • Personal papers, archival materials and other special collections must be approved and evaluated for value and relevance.  Please contact the University Librarian


Upon acceptance, donors must complete and sign the donation form to provide a list of the items donated and to transfer ownership to the UNT Dallas Library. Please feel free to contact the Library at 972-338-1616 or
