There used to be a listserv called BACKSERV.  I think it was hosted by
Blackwell.  It was quite active when I was signed on it.

***I have a two-step procedure.  We do keep an ongoing Offers List; I
one student who keeps it up as a matter of course.

***I keep an email list of serials people at the UW libraries; I also
subscribe to Backserv.  I send the issues list out generally about once
month, to the UW libraries first; we send issues free, generally using
ILL courier.  After a couple of weeks I post what is left to Backserv;
I ask for postage reimbursement.

Hi  -

I am a new Serials Librarian at North Carolina State University
Libraries. This position is totally new for me, so I'm in need of some

What do people use as an exchange for serials? We have a lot of
duplicate journals that come in, or samples, or post-cancelled titles
that arrive.  We don't want to throw these away, but we also need to
clear them off of our shelves - we have not taken part in any kind of
exchange program in recent memory.  Can I get some advice from people on
the various ways to handle these?  I like the idea of getting involved
with an exchange. So far the only one I've looked as it USBE (we are
members) but we don't seem to get any credit from them (other than
shipping) and I'm just wondering what other libraries (preferably of
approx. similar size) use.

Any help would be most appreciated. Thanks very much-
Joanna Duy
