Project Bookshare Concludes

Thank you for your interest in Project Bookshare. Effective January 1, 2006, the program is no longer receiving materials or making new donations.

ACS is committed to facilitating access to scientific information by scientists around the world. Through an innovative partnership with the International Network for the Availability of Scientific Publication, institutions in developing countries may qualify for extremely low-cost digital access to our journals.

The lasting legacy of the program is that more scientists around the world are able to access high-quality scientific information.

The organizations listed below may be interested in accepting donations of chemistry books and journals. Please contact them directly. You may also contact these organizations if you are interested in receiving donated materials for your institution’s library.

For more information, please contact intlacts@acs.org.
