Gifts to the Libraries

The University Libraries appreciate and acknowledge the generosity of those who consider making a gift of books or other information resources that extend and complement existing collections.

Unfortunately, the high cost of storage and processing makes it impossible for the Libraries to accept all donations.

Gifts to the Mercantile Library at the University of Missouri-St. Louis are accepted and retained at the discretion of the Director of the Mercantile Library, John Hoover (314-516-7245, jhoover@umsl.edu).

For donations of art such as paintings, sculptures, etc., please contact Julie Dunn-Morton (314-516-6740, dunnmortonj@umsl.edu).

All other gifts to the University Libraries are accepted and retained at the discretion of the Head of Collection Development & Acquisitions (Tim Nelson, 314-516-5080, nelsontp@umsl.edu).
