Subject: [SERIALST] jobbers who buy old volumes of periodicals
I have a retired faculty member who wants a place for his back runs of
engineering journals. We're going to take missing issues, but not more
than a few.
I used to have a list of companies who were interested in buying old
serial runs, but I can't find it.
Does anyone know of any such organizations?
Thanks in advance
