Actually free interlibrary loan, may be variable. My University library passes on a 10 cent per page xerox fee. And even if they obtain the original manuscript, they don't allow it to circulate past the gate. So I have to pay 7 cents/page to copy it myself. The original poster is welcome to e-mail me the citation if they are unable to get it by other means.
>Libraries should have an interlibrary loan service. The way this

>Biological Journal of the linnean Society during the 80's and then
>writes them a letter asking them to copy the needed article for you.
>You may have to wait two or three weeks to get the copy, but it is
>free, paid for somehow or other by library funds. The library at
>Tougaloo College where I work is small and can not afford a large
>selection of journals, and I have used interlibrary loan service a
>number of times. Only once, has the librarian been unable to find
>the needed articles. There is a reference journal called the Union
>List of Serials that lists the journal holdings of libraries. I
>presume it is being kept up to date, but I have not used it for about
>20 years, preferring to let my friendly librarian do it.
