I think maybe we were all waiting for someone else to respond
first.  Here's what I always send to prospective donors with items we
don't accept.  The listservs are at the the bottom.  If anyone can
help me add to or update this list, I'd be delighted.  SW

Journals in good condition (especially if they're current) can be offered
for sale.  Take a look at what's listed at

If you want to take the trouble to package up individual issues for the
libraries that need them and send a bunch of separate packages, you can
reach hundreds of libraries around the country -- and in other countries --
by sending a message to <>.  Or, if the
journals are medical-related, use <>.
(See <> or
<> for more
information.)  Tell them what you've got.  Word your message carefully --
if you want reimbursement for shipping, say so; if you want it in the form
of a check, specify that too (a lot of those libraries reimburse each other
with postage stamps!).  If you're not willing to ship overseas, say so in
your message.  I used to participate in this all the time, and it was a LOT
of work, but very satisfying to know that I was sending my unwanted
journals to places that really wanted them. SW
