nterlibrary loan can be excellent in some situations, but take a look at Amazon and Half.com (part of ebay) before you decide.

Many popular books are printed by the millions. Older ones are often available used for less than $1, and shipping by media mail is often $4 or so.

Historical books are also often available as reprints. Some print on demand. Plus Google has more and more available electronically.

Sometimes you can own a book you want for less than the interlibrary loan fee.

> i use interlibrary loan....google has books online? how does it work?

thanks! fred
