The Faculty Library of Arts and Philosophy accepts donations that add value to its collection.

The donation policy is guided by the following considerations:

  • The donation is free and in full ownership.
  • The Faculty Library only accepts donations that add value to current research at the faculty. Donations with e.g. a heritage value are referred to the colleagues of the Book Tower.
  • Unless otherwise agreed, the donor is responsible for the transport of the donation to the library.
  • The description of the donated books will include a reference to provenance.
  • Books that are already in the collection or books that we do not retain are transferred to Oxfam in accordance with the decision of the Executive Council.

If you are considering donating books to the faculty library, please contact the faculty librarian Paul Buschmann ( Together with the person responsible for the collection he will assess the added value of the potential donation.
