Book Donations

The EUI Library welcomes donations of materials in formats, subject areas and languages relevant to study and research done at the EUI.

Gifts are accepted without conditions. The Library reserves the right to dispose of donations as appropriate. They can be included in the collections, exchanged with other libraries or given away.

Donated books are evaluated by librarians in charge of collection development and recommended for inclusion where relevant.

When donated books are included in the collections, the name of the donor (persons or institutions) is inscribed in the book. Donors are invited to accompany their gift with contact information and are also welcome to insert their own bookplates.

The Library does not advise on monetary value of donations, or of materials that might be candidates for donation.


Large Donations

For larger book donations, the Library encourages donors to provide a description of the material, preferably accompanied by a list of titles. In the absence of such documentation, the Library may require on-site evaluation of the collection by Library staff.

Archival Material

For archival material, prospective donors are invited to contact the Director of the Historical Archives of the European Union at the European University Institute, Dieter Schlenker[email protected].
