Donation Policy and Donor Information
The library welcomes the donations of publications of interest to DRI. However, space is severely limited, so the material donated will be carefully reviewed and determined if it should be added to the collection.
If it is added to the collection, the material will be cataloged, integrated into the collection and available to the scientists and the community.
If it is not added to the collection, the donor will be contacted and it will be held for 10 days for the donor to pick up.
If the donor does not pick up the material within 10 days (or make special arrangements), it may be discarded or donated to another library.
If you are making a donation, please complete this form. (PDF)
