Help us find these missing pieces

Our most recent Annual Report shows that we have 142,556 items in our collection. While we are regularly buying new items to collection up to date, we also replace things that have worn out or gone missing. Occasionally, we run into problems tracking down replacements. There are a number of reasons why: a book may go out of print or maybe it was self-published by the author and we are having trouble tracking down another copy through our usual book suppliers. Sometimes a DVD that is part of a series gets damaged and it's only available to purchase as part of a very expensive box set. This results in gaps in our collection. Gaps we that we would fill if we could. 

We would like to ask for your help in replacing these missing pieces. We have posted a list here. If you have something on this list and you would like to donate it to help out, please drop it off at your favourite AVRL branch.
