Gift materials will be judged by the same materials selection standards that apply to purchased materials.
Gifts of library materials (books, magazines, etc.) may be accepted with the understanding that the JIS Library reserves the right to add them to its collection, distribute them to other libraries, donate them, or discard them.
All personal property, art objects, portraits, antiques and other collectibles, if accepted, are accepted only on the condition that they may be kept or eventually given away or discarded at the discretion of the librarian.
The JIS Library will not appraise or estimate the value of gift donations. The responsibility for such assessment lies with the donor.
