The Devon Karst Research Society (Plymouth).
Publications Procurement Programme (PPP) :-
current requirements.

Updated 22 July 2010.

The Society is constantly searching for published items of karst/speleo relevance to either fill in the missing issues of runs of Serial / Periodical Journals that we hold in stock or to acquire to support some aspect of the Society's work.
The Society's PPP is the usual channel through which publications acquisitions are sought or sourced and obtained. The PPP Budget, comprising of contributions from the Society's Members, finances all such acquisitions.
A trawl through the Library Karst- and Speleo-Related Serials (Periodicals) Catalogue will indicate where the gaps exist in our current Serials Listings. However, less obvious are other current requirements of the Library Karst- and Speleo-Related Serials and Non-Serials Collections.
This webpage indicates just a few of the Serials or Individual Publications required by the Society and which are persistently unavailable.
