Latest news and updates regarding NMU's COVID-19 response - COVID-19 update.
We have limited space and usually retain only one copy of a work. Please check OneSearch to determine if we already own the title. If we do, then the material should not be donated.
While age is not always a concern with fictional works, it is very important for works of non-fiction. We want our students to use current and accurate information. While the discipline dictates what is current, we ask that our patrons donate only works of non-fiction that are less than ten years old.
Materials that are moldy, musty or smoky smelling, have covers or pages missing or have highlighting or notes written in them are not candidates for donating.
Most magazines, journals, etc. are now available online and our collections are emphasizing that format. We are usually unable to accept print journals. If it is an uncommon journal title or one local to the region, please check our holdings. We will consider those issues we do not own or have access to.
