If anyone has contacts at universities in Ukraine or other xSU countries,
you might want to make them aware of the services described below. I
spoke with Dr. Torio and she said they would prefer if the receiving
institution would prepare a wish list - ranging from specific book or
journal requests to "We'll take anything!"
Alternately, if anyone knows of universities who will be discarding
chemical holdings, please inform them of the good their old references
can do elsewhere.

ACS PROJECT BOOKSHARE
The American Chemical Society's Project Bookshare provides a
means for individuals and organizations in the U.S. to donate
chemistry books, back volumes of journals, and non-print media to
libraries in colleges and universities in the United States and
other countries. Although the project focuses on libraries in
other countries, some small colleges in the U.S. which are not
state-supported are also eligible. Recently, efforts have been
made to assist libraries at institutions in Eastern European
countries where there is a critical need for scientific litera-
ture. Any recipient institution must offer a program that leads
to a B.A., B.S., or equivalent degree in chemistry. The materi-
als must be placed in libraries that are generally accessible to
students as well as to faculty members. Shipping costs must be
borne by donors and recipients, not the ACS.
All materials donated to Project Bookshare should be in good
condition, i.e., free of insects, stains, molds, not mutilated,
etc. Project Bookshare accepts chemistry books not more than ten
years old, as well as conference proceedings published as books.
Complete years of many journal titles will also be accepted.
Preference is given to journal runs of at least five consecutive
years. Project Bookshare is especially interested in those
titles on the ACS Committee on Professional Training (CPT) list
of recommended journals, a list which the CPT uses in conjunction
with the evaluation of departments seeking ACS accreditation of
undergraduate degree programs in chemistry. Volumes of Chemical
Abstracts, the Beilstein Handbook of Organic Chemistry, and other
classic reference works are also welcome, regardless of the dates
The American Chemical Society's Project Bookshare was initi-
ated in 1984. Donations first began to be accepted in 1985. The
activities of Project Bookshare are monitored by a subcommittee
of the ACS Joint Board-Council Committee on International Activi-
ties. The current chair of the subcommittee is Tracy
Primich, Chemistry Library, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor,
All donations to the ACS Project Bookshare must be approved
before shipment. Prospective donors should submit a list to Dr.
Joyce Torio at the Office of International Activities, American
Chemical Society, 1155 Sixteenth St., N.W., Washington, D.C.
20036. The list should include for books the titles, author(s),
and dates and for journals, the titles and dates. Dr. Torio can
be reached by phone at 202-872-4548 or by FAX at 202-872-6206.
(Also, 800-227-5558, then press 0 and ask for extension 4548.)
