Book Donation

Donations of materials that enhance the library collection are welcome. Because of the prohibitive cost of cataloging, processing, and storing library materials, it is not possible for the library to add all donations to the library's collection. Donated materials are evaluated based on the library’s collection development criteria. In general, a donated item will be added to the library’s collection if it supports the research needs of our students and faculty and if the item’s content aligns with the university’s established curricular guidelines.
 
All donated materials become the property of Ikeda Library, and items not added to the library’s collection are offered to other institutions, sold at book sales, or recycled if in poor condition. Income from the sale of these items is given to Soka University of America.
 
Due to the time it takes to catalog and process library materials, it is unlikely that recently donated items will be ready for circulation immediately. If a donated item needs to be ready for circulation quickly, or if you plan on donating a large number of items to the library, prior arrangements should be made. Please send requests and a list of possible donations to library@soka.edu.
 

Financial Contribution

Financial contribution is accepted at the Development Office. More information is available at the webpage of the Development Office, and the staff can provide assistance at development@soka.edu. A tax receipt will be sent to the donor from the Development Office.
