New Books

Dear Friends,
	I live in a small town near to a small city. When I want to 
read a new highly specialized publication, I go to my local tiny 
library and submit an interlibrary loan request. Within days or 
weeks, I can almost always get any book regardless of its obscurity 
from some other library as a loan for a couple of weeks at NO COST.

	I can even do this all over my computer and the library 
emails me when the book has arrived. Some times books come from 
thousands of miles away from large well known research libraries. Not 
all libraries are part of the inter-library loan system, but it is 
heartening that so many specialized books are available.

	Of course I do not expect newly published books to be 
available immediately. It takes time and some patience.
