Donation of Books

ICU Library receives donation offers from many quarters. However, due to space constraints, it is difficult to accept all offers. We provide two ways to give to the library.

ICU Used Book Donation

"ICU Used Book Donation(ICU 古本募金)" is the project to support the library.
Your used books become the funds for purchasing books.
For details, please visit our page.

  2. Books already housed in ICU Library but are designated as reserved books or course reference materials

In both cases, books should not be marked up, degraded, or dirty and should withstand use and preservation at the Library.

Also, the handling of books not accepted due to not meeting these guidelines shall be left to the discretion of the Library.
