Answer

If you are a student or faculty member, try Borrow Direct. Borrow Direct is a cooperative program among Yale, Brown, Columbia, Cornell, Dartmouth, Harvard, MIT, Princeton and the University of Pennsylvania, which allows us to share library materials. If any of the participating colleges has an available copy of the book you are looking for, it can be shipped here for your use in 4 business days. See the Borrow Direct web site at http://www.library.yale.edu/ill/borrowdirect.html for more information.

You may wish to submit a request for this item to Interlibrary Loan. For more information please see the Interlibrary Loan web site at http://www.library.yale.edu/ill.

If you would like the library to consider adding this item to our collection, please fill out the "Purchase Request" form located under "Library Services" at the bottom of our library homepage: http://www.library.yale.edu/ .  We will notify you of our decision.  It is important to note that it may be several months before the book is available.
