Free Books

This is a bit late, but just in case you need books for your library, there's still some time left. The following announcement was posted to the PLAI Yahoogroup:

The Asian Development Bank (ADB) Library wishes to announce that some 8,000 books and documents are available for donation to research and academic libraries from state colleges and universities and public institutions. The subjects covered are mostly economics, business, management and other areas of the social sciences. In addition to books, ADB publications on the same subjects are included.

Representatives may view the materials on December 5-9 from 9:00 am-5:00 pm. Prior registration is required. The ADB Library staff will assist in packing the materials but recipient institutions are responsible for delivery to their libraries.

For inquiries, please contact Riza Villafana (tel. no. 632-4270; e-mail lvillafana@adb.org) or Gina San Buenaventura (tel. no. 632-4272; e-mail gsanbuenaventura@adb.org). The ADB Library is located on #6 ADB Avenue, Mandaluyong City. It is between SM Megamall and Poveda Learning Center, along EDSA.
I have seen some of these books and documents because I used to work there. Most of them, I believe, are hardbound and a bit dated. But many, in my opinion, will still be of use to libraries whose collections are sorely lacking in basic texts in the social sciences.
