Purchase proposals and donations

The Library receives all your proposals by way of the form below and keeps you informed of the outcome of your request.

The purchase proposals will be sent on to our subject managers for evaluation and possible purchase.

The subscription proposals will be reviewed at year end by the Library and the Faculty representatives.

You would like to donate documents to the EPFL Library? Donating helps enrich the Library collections if it meets the teaching and research objectives set by the school.

In any event, please contact [email protected] in advance.

If you have less than 20 documents, your donation can be accepted at the desk by the librarians who will give you a receipt. For a more substantial donation, the Library will submit your request to a collection manager who will get back to you.

The Library reserves the right to redistribute the book, either for its users or for other libraries, or indeed destroy it, in accordance with the donation policy.
