Re: gift policy for serials Stone, Evalyn 18 Dec 2007 17:23 UTC

We accept almost anything, with the caveat that we can pass it along
however we wish.

With most serials, we review them to add whatever we might be lacking or
to add a new title, then (usually) discard the rest.  If there are long
runs, we might offer them through ARLIS-L to other libraries; if they
are substantial enough (monographic in nature, gallery catalogs, auction
catalogs), we can resell them with other books.

Subject: [SERIALST] gift policy for serials

I'm very interested in knowing policies regarding accepting and handling

serial donations from other institutions. I'd appreciate any information

you might share with me. Thanks in advance!
