Opportunities to Contribute to Collection Development


Suggestions for new acquisitions to enhance the ASPRL collections are welcome from anyone who uses it.  Actual acquisitions will be determined by established selection policies.

Donations are accepted. They can be in the form of money for purchases or actual items to be placed in the collection. Selection of gifts is reserved to the Librarian and determined by written policy. Items not needed by ASPRL can be passed on to other resource centers. A Gift Form is prepared at the time of donation to be added to the Library file. A copy can be given to the donor if desired. The donor will be responsible for estimating the value of the donation. Gift Plates are placed on items donated  in "In Memory Of" or "In Honor Of", to remember deceased loved ones or to celebrate special people or events. Written acknowledgement of gifts are sent to both donors and families honored by the gifts.
