Thank you to anyone making offers of books and materials already. In some cases I know you need to get rid of the materials you're offering because of space. But please realize, no one who has lost their collection has a place to put replacements yet. And they haven't figured out if they'll stick with print, I'm guessing. So...to the extent possible, please don't stop making the offers but if you can hold on to the materials for a while it would be wonderful.
Anne Myers has suggested a way to keep track of the offers:
People are trying to be helpful, responsible, and responsive, and not discard something that could be useful to someone who might desperately need it. I think the best thing for now is, if they can and have the space, to hold onto them and send info about titles/volumes available to a central place that could be compiled and posted.
Atlantic Reporter, v.1-300. -- Boston University. Contact: Anne Myers
Atlantic Reporter, v.1-200 – University of Richmond. Contact: Joyce Janto
General Digest, v.1-100 – Valparaiso University. Contact: Sally Holterhoff
Etc (I just made up those volumes, they’re probably totally wrong, but it’s an idea).
Is there someone who might take on this "keeping of the inventory"?? It's paperwork not housing the actual items (unless you are in possession of an empty warehouse!)
thanks everyone. Kathie S.
