Contributions for Cuban institutions

From: Jeanne Drewes <drewes>
Date: Monday, July 16, 2001
Cuban Libraries and Archives could use your help.  Current books and
journals are in short supply as is copy paper, pens and materials
for repairing books.  You can help.

There is a licensed shipment of materials for Cuban cultural
institutions that will leave the United States in late August.  The
cost of the shipment to Cuba has already been obtained.  What is
needed is to fill the container. Materials most needed are storage
boxes and folders, book cloth, book board, PVA, methyl cellulose,
acid free paper for end sheets, and Japanese paper for paper repair,
small tools such a bone folders, cutting knives, glue brushes,
scissors, self healing mats. (Larger equipment can be considered.)

Books and journals about librarianship, information services,
archives, preservation, information management, library and
information science and other resources that could be of help in the
preparation of librarians and archivists would be especially
appreciated and will go directly to the University of Havana the
only advanced degree program for librarians in Cuba.

Books and publications edited by ALA, SLA, ASIS, ARM, AMA and other
specialized associations would also be a very good contribution.

Current materials (published within the past 4 years) on technology
science, or medicine would also be put to good use. All of the above
publications can be in English.

Children's books, young adult, or adult fiction in Spanish will go
to public libraries throughout Cuba to supplement their dated and
worn materials.

To participate please send via e-mail or Fax: an inventory of titles
or supplies you wish to contribute.  You will be expected to pay
shipping to send the materials to the central warehouse in
Baltimore.  Upon receipt of your list of donations you will be sent
the address for shipping.  The donations must be received in
Baltimore by August 24, 2001.
