Thanks Mike. Those kinds of donations are especially helpful.
And I was wondering - what textbook do you use (oops did you use now that you are retired) for Peace Studies at Pacific?  I read an interesting article about how more schools are putting the topic in their curriculum.

Then if not needed there, a dedicated group checks to see if it might be valuable enough to sell individually with the money going back into library programs.
