The Visual Resource Center accepts material gifts. These gifts will be given through the Office of Development. The Office of Development will prepare any necessary donor agreements or tax forms. The Visual Resource Center is happy to prepare itemized lists of donations.

In accordance with federal tax law, any appraisal of the value of donations is the sole responsibility of the donor. Donation does not automatically equate acquisition into the collection. Items will be assessed for acquisition under the Center’s collection development policy. Any items not acquired by the Center will be donated to other libraries or similar non-profit educational institutions in the area.

Because the Visual Resource Center does not have the conservation capabilities, primary source materials should not be collected. In the event that primary source materials are donated to the Center, they should be directed to the appropriate special collection or archive giving preference to Pfau Library Special Collections and California State University libraries.

Due to the space constraints and mission of the Visual Resource Center, all materials should be open to consideration for deaccessioning if they no longer contribute to the educational purpose of the department. However, duplicates, out-of-date materials, and damaged materials should be considered first. Items that may fall into one of these categories may be replaced if they still meet the current criteria for acquisition.

When de-accessioning items, their value to other institutions and libraries should be considered. If institutions whose collecting policies would include items being de-accessioned, these items should be offered as donations to those institutions. If the items do not fit any institutions’ collecting policies, donation to public libraries for book drive sells should be considered.

The Visual Resource Center subscribes to academic fine art and art education journals according to curriculum needs and following recommendations of Art Department faculty. Subscriptions are re-evaluated before renewal based on the volume of use and importance to instruction.

Licensing of materials, including acquisition of digital images, should be considered when the items being licensed are not readily available and provide support for instruction. Licenses should be examined closely to protect the integrity of fair use practices within academic libraries.
