Might also be a good idea to canvass the alumni. Many times alumni are
more than happy to give gift subscriptions; there may also be
faculty-staff people who will pass their personal copies of titles along
to you after they're done with them.

This means they will see if you will be able to qualify for a free
subscription.  Of course, you'll only know if you qualify when you
your first issue.  If you would like, I can email you a list of the
subscriptions that we in our collection (about 30 free titles).

Have you contacted your own university press?  Also we receive quite a
number of "local" California publications, so you may want to check
state agencies, organizations like Rotary, etc., depending on the
of your library.  There are many free serials--but we'd need to know
areas of interest might be.

website  The website shows that it is $12 but
Complimentary Subscription form that I received had a question: Do you
to receive Professional Surveyor Magazine Free of Charge (and of
answered yes).  Also had a small questionare to fill out.

Dear Colleagues,

I manage a small residence hall library here at Indiana University. My
materials budget is almost non existent, so I am wondering if any of
know of free magazines that I could take for my library. Are there
currently many (any?!) serials that are offered free to libraries?

I'm not sure which resources to use to look for possible free serials,
so those kinds of tips would be welcomed.

Any information you may provide would be enormously helpful!
