The Faculty of the New School University in New York launched The Journal Donation Project in 1990. The principal objective of the Project is to assist in rebuilding major research and teaching libraries in countries that have fallen victim to political or economic deprivation through the provision of current subscriptions and back volume sets of English language scholarly, professional and current events journals.
