Books Without Borders is now Operation Medical Libraries
Apparently the name Books Without Borders has been used elsewhere and merger did not fit the missions of both organizations. The UCLA Medical Alumni Association had provided support of the collection and shipping of donated medical texts up to now (actually, the untiring work of Valerie Walker) and establishment of a not-for-profit is the next logical step. So, Operation Medical Libraries will now be the organization collecting medical literature for the benefit of health care institutions and medical schools in Iraq and Afghanistan. No website yet but you can contact them at info@OperationMedicalLibraries.org.
