Disposal of Materials


Special Collections

Special Collections materials are rarely removed, but when they are they follow the guidelines below.

  • No materials are withdrawn from Special Collections without the prior consent of the donating entity, if possible, and the approval of the Library Director.
  • In those cases where materials were accepted from a non-Xavier donor, restrictions placed upon the item at the time of acquisition will be honored.
  • Any items sold will be sold at fair market value with the proceeds benefiting the Xavier University. No materials will be sold to or otherwise acquired by a Special Collections staff member or other Xavier employee.
