UVM offers print journals (request by August 15)

The Bailey/Howe Library at the University of Vermont is offering print journals to any Vermont library that would like them, or any part of them. Our space crunch is such that we are removing the print editions of journals that we have complete replications for online in our JSTOR collections. Any libraries that have interest in runs of journals, or even just a volume or two to replace missing issues, are welcome to request them. We hope to move our physical journals out of Bailey/Howe sometime in August.

If you are interested in any of these titles, please send an email BY AUGUST 15 to the Bailey/Howe Serials Department at bhser@uvm.edu. Please be sure to be precise about the titles, volumes, and issues you would like. NOTE: Many of our journal titles are held in two places with more current issues shelved in Bailey/Howe, and older issues shelved in our storage facility (the LRA, or Library Research Annex). That is why many titles are listed twice, with the two locations represented.
