> Subject: geology books disposal - urgent
> The University of Hull is about to "remove" the majority of its geology
> books and periodicals from the Library. This includes a large number of
> USGS publications that are an ongoing exchange with the Hull Geological
> The Society would hate to see the USGS publications destroyed but does not
> have anywhere to put them.
> Please could you pass this message on to anyone you think might be
> interested (University geology Depts, Societies, etc) in them asking them
> to contact me urgently... The UoH has said that the Society can have them
> back and we would be pleased to donate them to any organisation that can
> use them and can collect them. It is urgent because the shelves will be
> cleared in the next four weeks.
> The University is likely to remove other runs of journals (mainly hard
> rock) and may wish to sell them.
