Is there a listserv for electronic serials exchange? I know that ARLIS list
has exchange lists, but is there a list that has serials exchange offers.
I've never seen any here on SERIALST, so I've assumed this ain't the place.
Thanks for any assistance,
PLEASE SEND WARM WEATHER, PLEASE!!!!!
Ed. note: It's true that messages for serials exchange offers are not
posted on SERIALST. The first paragraph of SERIALST's Scope and Purpose
statement (which is posted, bi-monthly, on the list) reads:
"SERIALST is not a forum for the trade or exchange of duplicate,
unwanted, or wanted serials."
However, the topic of serials exchanges has come up on the list before,
and a number of messages regarding duplicate exchanges (i.e., various
vendor services, and various discussions about initiating a generic
listserv exchange service, et al.) have been logged in SERIALST's
archives. The archives are available for keyword searching via the
UVM gopher (gopher.uvm.edu / UVM Listserver Archives / SERIALST),
or through LDBASE search protocols for BITNET LISTSERV.
If new information is available, we would be happy to post it.
