If your library doesn't own a book that you are looking for, you can request it through interlibrary loan. Almost all academic and public libraries offer this service to their patrons. You can ask about this at your local library. In addition, many public libraries encourage patrons to suggest purchases. However, if you are interested in getting materials in the quickest way possible, please use interlibrary loan.
