Gifts and Donations
You can provide a lasting tribute to a family member, friend, or colleague by making a monetary contribution to the LSUHSC-Shreveport Medical Library for the purchase of a Library resource in print or electronic format. Click here for more information.For information on supporting the Library through other financial contributions and endowments, please contact Director Dixie Jones at 318-675-5455 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Books, papers, artifacts, etc., related to the history of LSUHSC or to the medical history of the region may be appropriate for the Library's History of Medicine Collection. If you believe that your materials may be of historical significance, contact Dee Jones at 318-675-5458 or email@example.com.
The Library appreciates gifts of journals, current medical books, and current hardback fiction and non-fiction "leisure reading" books for possible addition to the collection.
The Collection Management Section of the Library maintains an annual record of the persons and departments that have donated items, along with the format of items donated; however, these records do not include number of items donated or the value of those items. Each LSUHSC donor receives an e-mail acknowledgement when the first donation of the calendar year is received. At the end of each calendar year, each donor receives a letter which states that a donation was made but does not specify the number of items or value of the gift. Any additional recordkeeping for tax purposes is the responsibility of the donor.
All donations delivered to the Library by LSUHSC personnel are accepted, with the understanding that the Library becomes the owner of the material and reserves the right to determine retention, location, etc. Materials not needed for the Library collection will be discarded.
Those who are not at LSUHSC who wish to make a gift of materials to the Library should send a list of the titles and publication dates of items to be donated. Library personnel will evaluate the list and make arrangements with the donor for delivery of any items that are needed.
The Library maintains a list of local, national, and international institutions and organizations that accept donations of used books and journals. This information will be forwarded upon request.
For more information on donating materials please contact Betty Tucker at 318-675-5457 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
