Someone else's attic

"Everyone wants them kept" said the recently retired professor of history at Oxford, when discussing the collection of New Scientists from the 1950s which I have acquired "but preferably in someone else's attic".

Have you asked the National Library???

I've tried a university library, but apparently they don't want old journals. Most of them are available on-line, which is significantly easier for researchers. (That isn't just recent journals, but ones from 50 years ago are on-line as well.)
