We have a few dupes here but reserving those for someone that might help us out.
Another great reference are the old joint computer conference east and west books. were or became AFIPS WOW THEY HAVE ALL THE INSERTING EARLY STUFF!
We have the stuff from start to the 80s as I remember... nothing newer.. a fine gift from Honeywell / Bull HN and some from side sources... some of the later hard bound ones we have some duplicates of... need to make a list.. The early ones we may be missing an issue ? will have to make a current list.
These AFIPS publications are another group that are not in full open access on the internet as far as I know.. But should be!
Some I like looking at for something different are the UK data processing Mags form the 50's and 60s as there are computer and companies in there I know nothing about at all.

I’ve found the Living Computers Museum in Seattle is interested in building their collection of paper copies of journals, and will pay for shipping. The form to offer items for donation is here: https://livingcomputers.org/Discover/Contribute-Historical-Artifacts.aspx . The more carefully you list the specific issues you have, the more likely they are to accept your offer (assuming they don’t already have the same issues). I’ve donated ACM publications and also various early PC magazines to them, plus a bunch of old MSDN CD-ROMs.
