Guidelines for Acceptance of Gift Materials

General Guidelines

Huie Library welcomes donations of books and information in other formats that enhance the Library's ability to support the teaching and research missions of Henderson State University.

  • Gifts are accepted with the understanding and agreement that the Library makes all necessary decisions as to retention, use, discard, and sale in the Huie Library Book Sale.
  • A list that includes Title, Author, and Date of publication can be prepared by the donor for the librarians to check for duplicates already in the collection before items are brought to the Library.
  • For the Huie collection, there is interest in new, high quality, scholarly books and items in other formats. Items generally not needed include magazines and journals, newspapers, or anything in poor physical condition.

CONTACT: Please contact Linda Evans, Technical Services Librarian, at 870-230-5315, if you are considering donating materials for the Huie Library collection.
