Dear Colleagues,
We are creating an internationally- and regionally-focused cadre of university librarians.

We are a higher education development project, currently all-volunteer noprofit 501 c 3 US higher education corporation, a charity.

We are negoiting with AAU in Ghana to send free journal articles, as we are a charity. They are interested, but thus far it has taken them three months to begin the simple negoitiation's final stage... All we are trying to do is to give away free journal articles through volunteers searching via open source databases and search engines... We will wait for a reply another two months, that will make six months that we first wrote to them. By November 29th we will withdraw if they do not get their ducks in a row.

We mainly wish to send journal articles to university libraries, via electronic transmission as we do in Asia. Can also send using our volunteer students to VPAA's Deans and Chairs, thousands of papers, electronically.

This is a courtesy missive to tell you that we mean well and have tried. It would be our pleasure to send papers to yahoo and google inboxes.
