Gift Policy

We gratefully accept gifts and donations in alignment with our Collection Development Policy. Items of interest are those that will enhance our collection strengths and facilitate our mission to support the curricular and research needs of our users, which include students, faculty, the local community, and scholars around the world. 

If you wish to donate materials such as books, documents, personal papers, photographs, or other items, it is best to discuss the gift with us before shipping any part of it. Please email us or give us a call at (918) 631-2496.

Internal Revenue Service regulations prevent us from making any statement regarding the dollar value of a potential gift. You may find it useful to review the documentation IRS provides for gifts-in-kind; go to and look up Form 8283. 

If you wish to make a financial donation, please visit the Office of University Advancement. Gifts from private individuals make an enormous difference in the quality of collections and services we can offer to our community. We are grateful for financial gifts of any size.
