Container loads of higher education books available

General information

Overall description

We receive thousands of high level academic books in English that have outlasted the American College market. Most subjects don’t change too much, but there are new editions printed every other year. This leaves thousands of books that have tremendous educational value but little economic value floating around.

We are looking to partner with an organization that will help us distribute these books to those looking for High Level Educational Books.

You will need to make sure and are responsible for the books to pass through customs without paying any additional tax as these are being donated.

The most economical method of shipping would be to ship by a container which may contain 20,000 books. It would make sense for ten universities or libraries to group together in a geographic region. So if there are ten schools they would need 2,000 books. We will sort the books based on the library’s need. If they want to expand their Economic department or expand their Science department. We will be able to provide a diverse range of books in their particular need. We receive books in: Psychology, Humanities, Literature, Communications, History, Math, Science, Child Development and Computer Science.

We would need a list of universities and/or libraries that are receiving these books and their contacts. We want this to be a successful project and need to make sure the right books are going to the right place. There is a high likelihood that we will be sending a representative to ensure that this goal is being met.

We are open to new ideas and input from you to make sure that good comes out of this.

Timing

We have books now, but would probably need 3-6 months of planning ensuring we have the right books.
