Some recent comments from the field about the importance of Sabre Foundation's work . . .
"Our library is the largest American Studies collection in Eastern Europe and the Center, three years ago, inaugurated a graduate program in American Studies so your donation could not be more appreciated, as we are trying to meet the needs of the ever growing number of library users.

"More and more politicians, journalists, government advisors, and other people responsible for directing Poland through the twists and turns of transformation are realizing that, although direct transfer of Western models is not feasible, much can be learned from the American exper- ience and analyses of American scholars. Sooner or later these people discover that the ASC library offers great opportunity to get acquainted with most recent publications in the field of social sciences, economy and business. This way, indirectly, your donation has contributed to the democratization of Poland."

Professor Krzysztof Michalek
Director, American Studies Center
Warsaw University, Poland
"We are very grateful to the publishers who donated so many beautiful books and to your officers who have arranged the transport of them to Central Asia. Lack of current texts is a serious concern for us all here and therefore we are greatly encouraged by your expression of support."
J. T. Tentiev, Rector

"I come from Croatia, where people were lucky enough to receive those gorgeous book donations. . . Several weeks ago I had a demanding task ahead of me: I was supposed to pass the final exam in high school and to apply for the university. I have always wanted to study medicine, which required passing an entrance exam designed to eliminate a great number of applicants. That is when I was encouraged to use the World Book Encyclopedia combined with Information Finder, the Interactive Visual CD-ROM Encyclopedia. It was fascinating to use them because everything I needed was there: explanations, graphics, definitions, refer- encing and much more. It was an indescribable pleasure to have that powerful research system at my fingertips."
