Procedure for the acceptance of donations

The library regards as donations those bibliographic materials that any individual or legal entity offers free of charge to the Tomás Navarro Tomás Library who will consider if they are appropriate for inclusion in the collection.

The Tomás Navarro Tomás Library policy regarding the acceptance of donations conforms to the current regulations of CSIC and follows the recommendations established by the CSIC Library Network. The policy regarding the acceptance of donations is guided by two principal objectives:

  • Complete and improve the library collections
  • Exclude bibliographic material which are not desired or already exist in the collection

The assessment of single item donations will be carried out by the Management of the Collection department.

The donation of bibliographic collections must include a favourable report from the General Secretary of CSIC.

The acquisitions policy of the library does not allow the following works to be incorporated in the collection:

  • Modern unpublished works, such as manuscripts or typed documents
  • Copies of works published in any format distinct from the original (photocopies, digital copies, etc.)
  • Self-published works in any format
  • Off-prints
  • Loose issues of journals which do not complete the library collections
  • Non scientific works
  • Popular science publications
  • Works whose subject is not compatible with the Tomás Navarro Tomás Library collection
  • Leaflets
  • Duplicates of works which are already in the Tomás Navarro Tomás Library collection
