Can I donate a gift-in-kind?  

Beginning June 1, 2018, the University of Toronto central libraries suspended acceptance of donated materials for the general collections. This was done so that we could assess and process the significant volume of donations previously received and to harmonize policies and acceptance procedures across the central library system.  The work on these two projects is ongoing and has taken longer than anticipated.   

Please note that this measure will not apply to gifts of antiquarian books for the Thomas Fisher Rare Book Library, gifts to the University of Toronto Archives or gifts to the Media Commons. 

If you have any questions or concerns regarding our temporary suspension of gift acceptances, please contact Loryl MacDonald, Associate Chief Librarian for Special Collections. 

The library encourages the donation of materials which will complement its own acquisitions. Over the years the generosity of donors has contributed significantly to the research collections. Thank you.
