Printed copies of A Grammar of Modern Indo-European, donated to dozens of European public libraries

NOTE: If a copy arrived to your library, please send us a confirmation mail

We have eventually sent dozens of printed copies of A Grammar of Modern Indo-European to different European public libraries, mostly within the European Union, and all of them to University libraries.

We are adding the libraries that were sent a copy (or those with available copies of the grammar) to our Map of Library Donations, including the library address and its website if available, to facilitate a quick query for those interested in reading the book in its printed version.

We plan to send at least a hundred copies more in the following months, but we want to see how our donations are (or aren’t) welcomed by the different university and city libraries. If some copies aren’t accepted or just don’t arrive to the expected destination, we will be able to send another copy to the same library, or to a different one in the same area. We try to keep a balanced distribution of books depending on different factors such as number of inhabitants of the target city (or metropolitan area), number of students/readers who use the library, university prestige, etc.

Remember that if you are a member of a public or private institution dedicated to higher education and/or research, you can request free donations of the Modern Indo-European grammar.
