The MHSLA Resource Sharing Committee has been collecting books from the National Library of Medicine’s Duplicates Program to distribute to interested MHSLA Members. A new list of titles is available here: http://www.mhsla.org/members/purchasing/NLMDuplicates120508.doc. These books are available to your libraries free of charge – you don’t even have to pay for shipping!
Please review the book list to see if any of these titles would benefit your library. If you’re interested in receiving any of these books, please submit the following in an email to Heidi Schroeder (firstname.lastname@example.org): title(s) of requested book(s), your library’s name and address, and the person in your library who should receive the books. Titles will be reserved on a first come, first served basis, although slight discretion may be used to distribute books as fairly and evenly as possible. If you request a title that has already been selected by another MHSLA member, you will be contacted by phone or e-mail.
The deadline for requesting books is January 10th, 2009. Requested titles will be shipped in early February. If you have any questions about this program, please contact the Resource Sharing Committee Chair, Heidi Schroeder.
