The Libraries welcome gifts of library materials and wish to develop positive and ongoing donor relationships. Offers to donate non-library materials will be referred to the FIU Libraries Major Gifts Officer or Head of Special Collections. The Libraries are prudent about accepting monographic materials to be added to the general collections. Donations of periodical literature in print are generally not accepted or added to the collection.

Gifts of the following fields or types are of priority interest to the FIU Libraries:

  • Latin America and Caribbean
  • Recordings
  • Musical scores
  • Art books and catalogs
  • Miami/South Florida material
  • Archives and personal papers

The gift review process will determine the cost- benefit involved in accepting a gift which requires expenditure to receive or special processing. Donators are encouraged to submit the gift information online for initial assessment. If the gifts are accepted, the Libraries will have the right to handle unselected gift books at their discretion.

Due to the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, the FIU Library is not accepting donations at this time. When conditions change, we will update this page to notify all interested parties. We appreciate the consideration and thank you for your understanding.
