Re: gift policy for serials Kristina M. Edwards 18 Dec 2007 13:26 UTC

We get fair amount of serials gifts.  We check to see if they should be
added to our collection or if any of the issues can fill in gaps in our
current collection.  Anything left we try to give away through Backserv
(this is a great thing to be apart of).  Anything that we can't get rid of
we pitch.  How easily it gets taken on Backserv depends on the journal
title.  I also offer art titles on ARLIS-L too.  Hope this helps!


p.s. We find that alot of people just don't want to toss them themselves.
