Donating journals, redux Williams, Mary Welch 09 Sep 2008 17:35 UTC

I found this in one of our medical journals:

(Subscription rates for institutions and individuals and a single issue

"For member society subscriptions, please contact the publishers
[address missing].

Individuals who wish to subscribe at a reduced rate must declare
informally that the subscription is for their own private use.  It will
not replace any institutional subscription and it will not be put at the
disposal of any library."

One could assume from this that one cannot therefore donate old issues
to any library.
