Learning research methods without a book is like learning to ride, without a bicycle. 
Plans for next Book Donation
The procedure is simple.  We  only  take research methods (statistics, big data, epidemiology) books for the Serageldin Library of Alexandria. We plan to collect research methods books from Psychology, agriculture, engineering etc. Math-stat books are fine, but not pure math, biochemistry...etc. Also, we are not collecting any journals.


1.  Identify books you would like to donate (both new, and books of the 20th century)

2. Box them (~ 30 per box, cost /box =~1.00

3. Include in each box the name of the people donating, and a dedication if you would like

4.  Send the books via media/ book rate (~$1.00 per book) to

At the meeting we will have a donation box. Make sure that you put your name and address into each book as we will be including a name plate for you in each book. Also, we will include your name onto our donor page.
Please let us know if you are going to any of these meetings, and if plan to take several research methods books to the meeting. We need to make plans for how to get the books to the warehouse, therefore I need to know approximately how many books will be donated. Contact us at
We very much appreciate your help.  It will be grand having your books rubbing elbows with Euclid and us.
  Contact Us if you would like to be in our donors list.
