Marcia and others:

        I've had some limited contact with the Archival Resource
Company.  It is a local company, only minutes away from this college. In
their sales pitch to me I got the same information as you did.  They
offered to purchase our backruns and loose issues.  I put a list of
material (loose single issues of various titles) together and sent it to
them months ago as a trial effort.  I never heard a word from them again.
They probably won't hear from me again, either.

Should we call ourselves a library exchange agency instead of backorder
