Architecture Books Donation

Published by Dipa Barua

Q: My father was an architect and Harvard graduate- he was a professor for Master of Architecture for Urban Design and Environmental Studies for 30 years. He has passed away and we have a library of books that he owned and used. There are in excellent shape and are quite expensive. I am wondering if your libraries would like them as a donation. Not sure how many exactly but I am estimating around 100 or so.

Can you let me know if your library would like them and I would be willing to drop them off - thank you kindly.
Which library?  Belzberg (SFU Vancouver)

A: Your offer to donate a collection of architectural books to Simon Fraser University Library has been forwarded to me. I have checked our collection policy and unfortunately the Library does not collect architectural books. I understand that the University of British Columbia does have a School of Architecture; perhaps they would be interested. Thank you very much for thinking of SFU.

Regards, Eric.
