Link Plus is your friend

book31.jpgOne of the best tools around for the do-it-yourself scholar is a network of public and university libraries in California and Nevada called Link Plus, which I think of as interlibrary loans on steroids. If you live near one of the public libraries that are part of the Link Plus network (see list here) you can have access to the holdings of 31 college and university libraries, including members of the California State University system, and the University of California at Riverside.

Instead of laboriously filling out interlibrary forms to get academic books at your local library, Link Plus lets you request a book using a computer browser either on your home computer or at the library. Even better, at many of the member public libraries, using the Link Plus system is free of charge.
