The New School: Journal Donation Project
The Mission of the Journal Donation Project (JDP) is to help develop research and teaching capacities in institutions of higher learning by building archives of journals in countries that for political and/or economic reasons have been unable to do so on their own by provding major resrach and teaching libraries with current ,high-quality journals. The journals provided serve to connect scholars, students, and professionals to a global community of current research, debate, and information. The Project began in response to the critical need for this material in the former Soviet Union and in East and Central Europe, where it had been unavailable for almost 45 years. The JDP library network now includes over 250 libraries in 25 countires including Russia, Nigeria, and Vietnam and countries throughout the former Soviet Union and Eastern and Central Europe. In 2007, the JDP began working in Cuba.
