Wolbach Library: Gift Policy
 The Harvard College Observatory Library accepts gifts-in-kind, or non-monetary donations, which are compatible with the Library's collecting philosophy and which enhance and complete its selection effort. The Library reserves the right to limit such gifts to those which substantially benefit the Library and are cost effective to receive, catalog, process, maintain and preserve. The Library, through its governing institutions, assumes ownership of all donations and reserves the right to add donated materials to its collections, and to exchange, sell, or discard them as appropriate. The Library accepts donated collections which must be kept intact, items offered conditionally, temporarily or with restrictions only in unusual cases of exceptionally rare and valuable items. Appraisal and documentation of materials for tax purposes is the responsibility of the donor.
