    Not our public ones. Hence they suck.

    SELU's library does interlibrary loan though.

    You know, Pope Pius XII was hated by Jews because he never said anything against the Nazis, and he also failed to do anything at all to help the Jews.

    The Chief Rabbi of Rome during WWII, because of the Church's abetting of the Nazis, embarked on a lifelong campaign to condemn the Church, forever swearing that the name of "Eugenio" would be stricken from human memory because of the Pope's crimes.

    yes that's exactly what i was referencing. im glad you're aware of the historically rather recent total moral bankruptcy of your theoretically infallible institution

    Does Die UberPope require a Vatican library card to access the vast Catholic archives?


    Or to borrow his copy of Mein Kampf.....

    There's not shame in admitting you don't use your library card.

    I wish I had a library card. I have wished this since I was about 14. :(

    I've only heard of libraries transferring requested items between local branches within the same system...how's it even possible to do this across the whole country? Unless you live in a really small English-speaking country (ironically the only such country I can think of is the one where English originated...).

    part of my job is actually handling the interlibrary loan lending for our library so i feel like i should have an articulate answer, but i'm afraid i don't understand which part is hard to grasp. requests come in, we put the books in the mail. i sent a book to australia the other day, so it's not like it's limited to just one country either.

    Well I mean, where I live we have a county-wide library system and I'm pretty sure I'm not able to get a book from an adjacent county's libraries, let alone one in another state or from abroad.

    I found out my local library card number is recognized by OED online as a Northern Ireland library card number. So now I have access to the OED under the auspice of some Irish person who has probably never used their card online.

    This is the extent of my rebellion.

    We use ours to let our kids borrow books, as well as borrowing DVDs... they actually have a great selection of good movies. DVDs you can keep for a week for free... take that, Blockbuster.

    The last time I used my library card, it was to reserve a computer at the library. Since I now have the internet at home, I haven't been to the library much. 'Cause you have to bring stuff back.
