• Periodicals Want List

    The Prelinger Library seeks the following periodical and serial titles for its collection.

    BACKGROUND: In order to deepen our holdings in subject areas where we actively collect, and to better serve patrons who express recurrent interest in these areas, we are looking for runs of the following serials. Regretfully, we have an insignificant acquisitions budget, but would welcome discussions with libraries or others seeking to deaccession or part with any of these titles. We are, of course, pleased to reimburse for costs of packing and shipping. In cases where reprints are available, we would also be pleased to accept them. 

    We also maintain a growing collection of zines in all subject areas, including activism, culture, gender, literature, music and politics, and welcome donations of zines or other self-published material. 

    We list successive titles for the same periodicals in some cases for the sake of convenience.
