I've been teaching a few years now and the number of older editions of textbooks is beginning to pile up in my office. There is no policy at my university for disposal of old textbooks. These books were purchase with department funds and it troubles me to throw them away. They content is still relevant as the newer editions are not ground-breaking in material.
My questions are as follows...
- Please share how you deal with older editions of textbooks?
- Is there a policy at your institution (if so please share) or do you have a personal way of dealing with this problem (again please share)?
