Collection Process

We currently offer a scheduled collection service to 43 Universities across England and Wales and have been growing each year since inception.

Typically, we will email specific academics within a University advising of the collection date. These academics then leave the unwanted texts outside their offices, clearly marked 'for collection by Book Harvest' and we arrive as arranged, to collect the texts.

We also regularly receive requests from academics for larger collections when they are retiring or relocating, as well as from administrators and faculty managers needing a collection service when staff are moving offices. We are happy to help in all these circumstances.

Please note we are able to collect the following types of text:

All books with an ISBN number, regardless of age and condition.
We are unable however, to collect journals.

Please view our Calendar to see our upcoming collections. We will be adding collections regularly so please check back or send us an email if you would like us to add your University to the calendar. Please note we never charge for our collection services.
