Book Supply and Donation

Book Supply

HKUST Library strives to deliver a high quality academic collection in all formats to advance effective learning as well as teaching and research excellence at the University.

  • The Library maintains a list of booksellers and other vendors who supply library material.
  • Companies that wish to be on the suppliers list (in order to be contacted for quotations for purchase) should contact the Resource Management Unit

Book Donation – Conditions of Acceptance

The Library welcomes gifts of books and other materials. Materials that are of good physical condition and support the current teaching and research programs of the university will be gladly accepted for review.

  • The Library reserves the right to dispose of gifts not taken into the collection or to forward them to another library.
  • Acknowledgment of receipts will be given at the request of the donor.

Large Volume of Donation

  • To help the Library check against duplicates and assess relevance, donors are encouraged to prepare a title list.  The list should include bibliographic details such as author, title, edition, publisher, and publication year.
  • When appropriate, a bookplate will be affixed to each of the donated items as a token of appreciation.
