Back copies of journals seeking a new home …

I am seeking to dispose of back copies of the journals I have collected over the last 30 years as an academic – but cannot find anyone who might be interested in having them!  I hate to see them simply going to a shredder, but even organisations that send publications to universities without the resources to purchase them now seem to shred back issues and use the money to support online subscriptions instead.

So, if anyone knows of a good home for the following journals, please let me know:

  • Advances in Horticultural Science (since c.1990)
  • Annals of the Association of American Geographers (since c.1980)
  • Area (since c. 1970)
  • Australian Wine Research Institute Technical Review (since c.1990)
  • Children’s Geographies (since 2002)
  • Environmental Ethics (since c.1995)
  • Geographical Journal (c. 1985-2000)
  • Journal International des Science de la Vigne et du Vin (since c.1990)
  • Journal of Geography in Higher Education (since c. 1985)
  • Landscape History (since 1980)
  • Philosophy and Geography (since 2001)
  • Professional Geographer (since c.1980)
  • Third World Quarterly (since c. 1990)
  • Transactions of the Institute of British Geographers (since c.1970)
  • Treballs de la Societat Catalana de Geografia (since c. 2000)
  • Vitis (since c. 1990)

It seems a great waste to consign these journals to a skip, but unless I have requests for them by the end of September they will have to be shredded.  Please help find a home for them!

  1. You’re talking about paper, right? 😉

    Yes indeed – free paper copies of all of them! The transport costs to get them to Africa seem to be more than they are worth – such a shame! If anyone knows a solution, I would be really grateful!

  3. Tim, will circulate to our ACU libraries network – in the past some African libraries have been sufficiently interested to cover mailing costs.

    Hi Tim
    How are you?

    I’d be interested in taking Landscape and History off your hands if all that beckons them is the skip. I’ll work out the logistics of collecting them if you say they can be mine!!

    Best wishes
