The USC Libraries are temporarily pausing acceptance of unsolicited books and other collections. We expect to resume reviewing donation offers in December 2022.
We appreciate your thinking of us. However, please keep in mind that when the pause ends, in most cases we are rarely able to accept unsolicited items. You might also consider organizations like Better World Books or Pick Up Please, or your local public library may accept donations of used books.
