For Libraries

If you are interested in receiving donated scientific books (mathematics or related subjects), please send a list of the mathematical areas in which books are needed to the CDC Administration. We will keep the library in a database until a potential donor is found and shipment arranged.


Applicants will be notified about the result of the request. If plans are made to ship the materials, the receiving institution should anticipate any customs problems and instruct the CDC on specific shipping requirements. The CDC cannot pay customs duties.
