Do You Have Dated VBA Journals You Would Donate?
Thursday, June 16, 2016
In the interest of safe-keeping the VBA's history, the association hopes to compile two complete sets of the VBA Journal and VBA News Journal -- all 42 years of them.
Unfortunately, time has ravaged some issues.
If you keep a library of the VBA's official publication and would be willing to part with some issues to complete the VBA's sets, we'd like to talk.
One archive set will be bound; the other will be saved in sleeves and used for research and to provide scanned copies of articles to members requesting them.
These are the years and issues that would complete our sets:
- 1978 - Spring and Fall
- 1979 - Fall
- 1980 - Spring
- 1981 - Spring
- 1982 - Winter
- 1998 - We wish to confirm all issues published, because the journal switched midyear from quarterly to eight issues a year. (Thank you, Hunton & Williams Law Library for providing issue Nos. 1 and 3!)
- 1999 - No. 4 (Thank you, Hunton & Williams for providing No. 1.)
- 2000 - (Thank you, Hunton & Williams for providing Nos. 4 and 7.)
- 2001 - (Thank you, Hunton & Williams for providing Nos. 2, 5, 6 and 8. Thanks also to VBA Past President Jeanne Franklin for providing Nos. 1 and 6 to complete both sets.)
- 2002: Nos. 1 and 8 (Thank you, Hunton & Williams for providing Nos. 4, 6 and 7.)
- 2003: No. 8 (Thank you, Hunton & Williams for providing Nos. 1, 4 and 6.)
- 2004: (Thank you, Hunton & Williams for providing No. 1.)
- 2005: No. 2 (Thank you, Norfolk Law Library, for providing Nos. 5 and 6!)
- 2006: (Thank you, Norfolk Law Library, for providing No. 4)
- 2007: We wish to confirm that five issues were published, because the journal switched midyear from six issues a year to quarterly that year.
- 2008: No. 3
- 2009: We wish to confirm whether any Spring issues were published or if they were just emailed.
If you have any of the issues we seek and would be willing to donate them to the VBA in perpetuity, please contact Marilyn Shaw, communications coordinator, at 804-644-0041 or by email at email@example.com. Not only will you receive the association's deepest gratitude and hearty thanks, but you will be ensuring that the VBA's history lives on.
