We collect publications put out by our own student body but to my
knowledge have never added anything from any other student body

***The situation is the same here at Cofrin Library.

***Unsolicited periodicals, of any ilk, are almost without exception,
recycled.  I cannot think of any that were ever added to our collection,
at least in my time here.  Other freebie publications are passed along
to our acquisitions librarian for a decision.  Again, I cannot think of
any put out by non-UW students that were added to our collection.

***As for advice, if the publication has scholarly value, the student
body may want to try to "sell" it to professors of the subject.  We do
buy what a professor requests (well, almost always, at least :)
