Donations and Gifts to The Jiew Bangsue Music Library
The Jiew Bangsue Music Library always appreciates the consideration of those who would like to contribute gifts and donations to enhance our library collection. It is our commitment to continue building the collection which supports the curriculum of the College of Music, Mahidol University. Gifts and donations are accepted at the discretion of the music librarian on a selective basis.
We accept unsolicited gifts and donations. The items are evaluated based upon the suitability of the contents and format, physical condition and library/departmental needs.
Because of the limitations of available space and staff time required for processing, we are not accepting the following:
Reel-to-reel audio recordings
LPs of works available on CD
Items in poor condition
Unpublished music and recordings
Unauthorized (photocopied) copies of books, music and recordings
All donors are encouraged to call the music librarian to describe potential gift items prior to their delivery. For a large gift, the donor will be asked to provide an itemized list of the contents.
If a donation is accepted, the items may be delivered to the music library. Gifts become the property of The Jiew Bangsue Music Library and the library reserves the right to dispose of any items that will not be added to our collection. Whenever possible, the library distributes unselected items to institutions, agencies and interested groups.
University policy prohibits Library staff from appraising material donations. For questions in English on donating items please contact Dr. Joseph Bowman at firstname.lastname@example.org. For questions in Thai on donating items contact Khun Kittima Tarateeraphap at email@example.com
The library will formally acknowledge gifts with a letter from the University Librarian.
