You aren't limited to what you can find at the University of Iowa Libraries. If you can't find what you need in Smart Search or InfoHawk, try Worldcat, a catalog with materials from thousands of libraries worldwide.  Once you find what you need, you can request the book through our Interlibrary loan service.

Note: This is not for the procrastinator.You will need to allow at least a week for your request to be processed and the item shipped here from another location.
