Interlibrary loan

It is hard to believe that the book I seek is only in 2 libraries worldwide and that software wants me to request the one in England (held, I believe, in a non-circulating section of the library) and not the one in Texas.

Another book I seek, costs $100 to buy. If it were less expensive, I would buy it.

  1. Have you tried searching for the 2-library book by some other term? Author rather than title, or vice versa? I had one of those this summer, which actually was in the Great British Library I was working in, but World Cat claimed it was in two libraries worldwide not including the GBL.

      I have tried all and it is so ODD. This book ought to be in LOC at least.

      • Spelling error in the entry?? Propagated to other libraries through laziness? Very odd. Have you searched the LOC catalogue itself? I’m probably teaching my grandmother to suck eggs, here. E-mail me if you’d like me to look here.

        It’s a Spanish translation of a Brazilian short story collection that was very famous and is referenced a lot in secondary literature. It is hard for me to believe it is so hard to see. The original isn’t very easily available either.
