Libraries at University of Nebraska-Lincoln


Date of this Version



This study was conducted to ascertain the trends of donations to private academic libraries in Ghana and how these donations have affected the collection development and service delivery of the library. The population of the study comprised of one (1) librarian and two (2) assistant librarians from the Central University library. A qualitative research design was employed to collect data for the study, and the data were thematically analyzed.

Findings indicated that the majority of private academic libraries hardly received any substantial donations due to lack of partnership with any donor institutions and they also did not take the initiative to look for donors.
