Title of the submission
Type of submission (discussion, hot seat, panel, presentation, tutorial, workshop)
Not really any of these, but I wasn't sure where to put it. Though of course it could act as a sort of Icebreaker as it will lead to various people trying to meet various other Wikimanians in order to pass on books and stuff.

Abstract (at least 300 words to describe your proposal)

Some of us have more access to reference books and libraries than others. Many of us have reference books or magazines that we will happily pass on to a Wikimedian who will make use of them. Wikimania the global library is how that can happen. Simply sign up with some books, cameras, laptops or other portable material that you can get to Wikimania, and by the magic of wiki we will try to match you up with someone who can use that, and if they aren't coming to Wikimania someone who can transport it for you.

If you see something that you could make good use please sign for it or if you aren't coming to Wikimania please ask someone who is to collect it for you.
