Visual Resources Donations Policy

Contact
Please contact the Visual Resources Librarian, Sheri Rosenzweig, if you are interested in donating a collection of either 35mm slides or digital images.

Donation Considerations
In accepting donations, we consider whether images are in good condition, whether the subject matter will be supportive of the disciplines taught at the BAC, whether the images are original [as opposed to copystand or another type of derivative] and whether there are technical issues which may limit inclusion [such as insufficient identification].

Donated 35mm Slides
If a collection is accepted, not all slides donated will necessarily be converted into digital images. We will review the images for their visual quality as well as for their intrinsic value to the overall BAC Visual Resources Digital Images Database.
The Visual Resources Library reserves the right to discard the original slides donated unless there is an agreement between the donor and the Visual Resources Library to do otherwise.
Library staff cannot give tax advice, nor are they permitted legally to appraise the monetary value of a collection. It is up to the donor to arrange for and bear the cost of any such appraisal.

Donated Digital Images
If a collection is accepted, not all digital images donated will necessarily be added to the VR Library's collection. We will review the images for their visual quality as well as for their intrinsic value to the overall BAC Visual Resources Digital Images Database.
The Visual Resources Library will store/maintain only images that are uploaded into the VR Library's collection.
Library staff cannot give tax advice, nor are they permitted legally to appraise the monetary value of a collection. It is up to the donor to arrange for and bear the cost of any such appraisal.

Donor Agreement
If a collection is accepted; the donor will receive a donor agreement form [which will include information about accessibility and copyright] which must be signed by the donor as well as the Visual Resources Librarian for the donation to be formalized.
