Subject: Donating journals

 A few weeks ago I posted an inquiry about what libraries
would appreciate donations of back issues of _Language_.
Below, in condensed form, are the responses I received.
 Some explicitly said
they could use both _Language_ and other journals.
 I repeat my suggestion that potential donors communicate with
the specific library or contact person BEFORE sending any journals,
to avoid duplication.
 Also to avoid duplication, note that I have arranged to send
_Language_ vols. 49-69 (1973-1993) to Huelva (see below).
 For donors in the U.S. who are curious about the cost of sending
bulky journals abroad, the Post Office informs me that the cheapest
rate is 72 cents a pound (15 lb. and up),
using a canvas "M Bag" provided by the post office,
and to Spain it could take 3 to 4 months.
 In addition to the people named below,
I thank David Pesetsky ( for his helpful response.

We are trying to build up our collection of journals and would very much
like to have back copies of Language as well as any other journals.

The University of Northern British Columbia is a brand new university and
has minimal journal holdings in linguistics. Back issues of _Language_ would
be very welcome.
