Book and Journal Donations

BooksCleaning out your office? Moving away from Pittsburgh? Or just trying to unclutter your space? The HSLS libraries may accept books published within the last five years – or books that are over one hundred years old. Contact Leslie Czechowski (, assistant director of Collections and Technical Services.

Journals (bound or unbound) or books that do not match the above criteria might find new homes in other countries. The Health Sciences Library at the University at Buffalo has created a Web listing of international donation programs, providing potential donors with contact information and descriptions of institutions, agencies, and programs that desperately need educational materials and equipment for their students and citizens but have little or no budget.
