which will be repaired as necessary, scanned, photographed, slideshows uploaded and brought back into circulation.
As we still have many other searches and attempted recoveries underway this will not be done in the next few days, but they will gradually all reappear for mooching. If you are the creator of one of them and wish to reserve it once relisted please let me know and we will arrange for it to be held for you.
Please assist us by always checking that you only send to reliable journallers (check they have the bmjl large world logo in their friends list). If a journal is not sent within six weeks of request or you find on has gone missing, the sooner we know the more likely we will be able to trace it and recover it. Consistent bad practice will lead to journallers being removed from the bmjl friends list, so check each time you accept a journal mooch please!
When I started looking for missing journals in 2009/2010 over 50% seemed to be lost or stalled, which is atrocious. With the help of the library shelf-holders and some alert journallers this is gradually being corrected.
New journallers are welcomed, and a request to befriend the library will only be refused if there are grave doubts about the record of the moocher.
As with all 'free' services there are costs and expenses, these are not passed on to the journalling community, but deserve some consideration with respect to the use and care of journals.
