I have over 20 years worth of bound periodicals (Time, Newsweek and Life) and I would like to get rid of them. What do other libraries do? Do you just throw them out? Does anyone know anyone who would want them?
We sent an e-mail to LM_net targetting our area and found a couple of libraries that took what they wanted. You can also call your local college libraries, some still have hard copies.
The rest we recycled.
Mansfield University Scholarship Program – Begin in January 2012
In an ongoing effort to recruit a new generation of school library leaders, Mansfield University recently received a fifth Institute of Library and Museum Services (IMLS) grant to fund scholarships for its totally online School Library & Information Technologies Master of Education degree program with school library certification. If you know of an educator or non-certified librarian seeking school library certification, please pass along the news that we are still accepting applications for the spring 2012 semester.
The Master of Education program, ideally suited for working educators
with no time to drive to a university, offers a convenient and effective path to school library certification. For detailed information and contacts please refer to the Fulfilling the Promise homepage, at http://libweb.mansfield.edu/promise/, or contact Cynthia Keller, Department Chair firstname.lastname@example.org
