We use the listserves, BACKSERV and REFEX, to offer them to other
libraries. This reaches several locations, some federal, lots of
educational, some private. If there is more than one library that wants
them, we give them to Feds first, then educational, etc. I think it's all
legal (my interpretation), and it's an excellent way to "share the wealth,"
especially as opposed to the dumpster. --Cathy Wright, USDOE, Albany, OR
