Archive CD Books USA Donates Books

While not a part of the earlier announcement from Archive CD Books USA, I
think it is important to recognize the company's dedication to making
information freely available. This includes somewhat philanthropic efforts on

The company buys old books, occasionally paying rather significant sums for

2. Archive CD Books USA also offers 33% to 50% discounts to libraries
and genealogy societies that purchase CD-ROM publications from the company.
This even includes CD-ROM publications from their international partners in
Great Britain, Ireland, Canada, and Australia. More information about library and
genealogy society discounts may be found at
