1. Put your books into the Donation Box beside the southern entrance of the Foundation Building at the SIP campus;

2. Give your books to the library staff at Library Circulation Desk on the 3rd floor (Library in Central Building, North Campus) or on the 1st floor (Library in XJTLU Entrepreneur College(Taicang)) .

Criteria for acceptance of donations include:

  • The items should be clean, unmarked and in good physical condition, unless there is an exceptional case for acceptance;
  • One or several volumes (not integrate) of a multi-volume collection will not be accepted;
  • The items should fit within the scope of the library’s collections;
  • The Library does not generally collect unpublished materials;
  • The items should be free of licensing, copyright or other restrictions;
  • Titles that duplicate existing library resources may be accepted, if the existing copies are in heavy demand and the number of copies is less than 5.
  • The reviews of the contents of the items are required by the Library before they are accepted into Library stock.
