Donations & Gifts

The Balme Library greatly appreciates offers of donations  that  enrich existing collections and support the instructional and research mission of the University of Ghana.

However, with the increasing availability of electronic resources as well as budgetary and space constraints, the Library has been obliged to adjust its acceptance policy accordingly.

The Library may decline to accept items that:

  • are not within the scope of its collections.
  • do not support the instructional and research programs of the university.
  • would require extensive conservation.
  • entail donor restrictions the Library cannot honor.

Gifts are accepted subject to the policies of the University of Ghana with the understanding that the university reserves the right to determine retention and disposition. Upon acceptance, gifts become the exclusive property of the university.

Donations of manuscripts may involve additional considerations to be discussed between the university and the donor.

If you wish for  additional information or feel that your collection may have unusual value for the library, you are welcome to contact the gifts coordinator, Newton Yao Akrong, on 233302213820 ext 3507
