Gifts and Donations

Monetary Gifts

You can provide a lasting tribute to a family member, friend, or colleague by making a monetary contribution to the LSU Health Shreveport Health Sciences Library for the purchase of a Library resource in print or electronic format. Click here for more information.

You can also support the LSU Health Shreveport Library through financial contributions and endowments. Please click here  for the LSU Health Foundation Donation Page. Choose Medical Library as the designation for your donation.

The Library has agreed to license resources on behalf of LSU Health Shreveport departments that wish to use departmental funds to pay for the entire ongoing cost of the resource for the campus. If your department is interested in this arrangement, please contact Library Administration at 318-675-5449.


Historical Materials

Books, papers, or artifacts related to the history of LSU Health Shreveport, or to the medical history of the region, may be appropriate for the Library’s History of Medicine Collection or the institution's archives. The space for these collections is very limited. In general, any donations accepted by the Library become the property of the institution, and LSU Health Shreveport reserves the right to determine their retention and location. If you believe your materials may be of historical significance, contact Library Administration at 318-675-5449.


Donating Materials for the Main Collection

Effective January 2019, given limitations in space and the cost of processing materials, the Library is unable to accept print donations for the main collection. Library staff have prepared a list of other agencies that might accept donations.

Please see our 2019 retention policy and our 2019 material donation policy.
