Western Book Donation Programs Effective, But Need Improvement

The Civic Education Project recently completed a study of the effectiveness of U.S. book and journal donations to the former Soviet Union and East Central Europe, based on 700 surveys of librarians, faculty members, and university officials, plus a large number of interviews with donor organizations. Following are some of the key points from the Executive Summary. Editor's note:  Groups seeking to provide Christian literature to new seminary and Bible institute libraries and existing public and university libraries would do well to carefully consider the findings of the CEP survey.
