AIR-BRITAIN BOOK, PERIODICAL ARCHIVE AND MAGAZINE MART
As part of Air-Britain's long-term Archival Strategy, we are actively seeking a comprehensive collection of aviation periodicals, ranging from the commercial monthlies through the various specialist magazines, manufacturers and corporate publications, to the myriads of amateur and enthusiast magazines - worldwide. The basic criterion behind any magazine series being collected is that the material therein is useful for research purposes.
The Periodical Archive (held by me) currently stands at about 27,000 separate magazines. While this will at some stage in the future be made available for research - hopefully by being digitised - this inevitably will be a while off yet - and require the services of volunteers! But if you know where a particular article etc is, we can probably already copy/scan it for you.
As part of this exercise, we are actively looking to acquire collections and donations - both from members and others. Inevitably, this gives rise to a substantial number of duplicates. Hence, we now have available for disposal an ever-growing collection of surplus magazines. These are being made available at a low price - so as to find homes where they will be appreciated rather than the ignominy of a landfill site!
This list (which is as yet only a fraction of what is in store) will be updated regularly and frequently, so please keep visiting the list to see if those magazines missing from your collection have been added.
