Donating to the Library

Monetary Donations

The Hill Freeman Library and Spruill Learning Center welcomes monetary contributions. The current "information age" has seen both rapid increases in the publication of scholarly materials and the demand for access to these resources. Unfortunately, the cost of providing these publications has risen as well. Your generous gifts help the library to continue to provide the best resources to support our students, faculty and staff in their academic endeavors. For information about how you can contribute financially to the library's mission, please contact the Office of University Advancement at 770.720.5507 or

Gifts of Books or Media

Gifts of books or media are encouraged with the understanding that the library may choose to add or dispose of gifts at its discretion. Gifts are evaluated using the same criteria for purchased materials. In accordance with Internal Revenue Service rulings, the library assumes no responsibility for the appraisal of gift items nor can the library accept gift items with restricted conditions. A gift acknowledgement letter confirming the number of items given can be requested at the time the gift is received. Please contact Joel Langford for further information at 770.720.5585 or
