How the program works
Sabre works closely with its network of indigenous partner organizations in identifying and helping to meet the educational needs of developing and transitional countries. An "offering list" of available inventory is sent to the partner organization via e-mail, and the partner responds with exact details of the titles and number of volumes requested, as per the needs of its network of recipient institutions. (Alternatively, partners may request Sabre's Book Program Manager to make the selection, guided by stated priorities in terms of subject and educational level). A "pull list" is then generated at the Sabre office and sent to the Sabre warehouse. Shipments are prepared by the Sabre warehouse staff, who collate, pack and ship the books. Quantities shipped overseas typically range between 50 - 500 copies per title per country (determined by the partner organization); smaller quantities of library and reference materials are available. For appropriate titles, enough copies are provided for classroom use.
