***No answer, but Cofrin Library has been similarly
mysteriously gifted.

We've been getting 6 free subscriptions to magazines via Ebsco.  We are a
university library specializing in Business studies.
We receive:
     2 copies ESPN
     2 copies Fitness
     2 copies YM- Young & Modern
We called and complained that if they were going to give us anything free,
at least it should relate to our subject matter, but that didn't work.
So now we file them in the trash unless our student workers take them.

EBSCO has sent out this title (among others) as a "gift" for being a
valued customer.  We do not catalog or check in the title.  It goes to
recycling at our library.
