*The Library may retain potentially controversial subject matter material for a designated amount of time to see if it is challenged.
The Library will not add duplicates to the Special Collection unless the book is in better condition than the copy currently in the collection (in which case the Library will retain both). Donations given to the Library become the property of the University; materials not selected for inclusion in the Pat Scales Special Collections may be added to the Circulating collection, or may be sold, donated or discarded at the discretion of the Library. In accordance with our more general gift policy, the Library is unable to provide appraisals of donations.
