I am a prof at CSU Bakersfield and we just got a new building with an 
entirely empty Computer Science library (they budgeted for bookshelves, 
but not books). If you guys are still interested in donating to a library, 
we would love to have the books. I talked to my department chair and he is 
willing to pay book-rate (media-mail?) shipping to get the books down here 
if you guys are willing to pack them up and donate them. Contact me 
off-list at either this email or my campus email, melissa@cs.csubak.edu, 
if this might be something you guys are willing to do.
