A quick Google search fails to reveal any ebooks by this author, Alan B. Grebene. You are not asking for an electronic copy of one of his published books, are you?

Book title?

From looking at books by Alan B. Grebene, I must warn you that his books appear to be pay-for, copyrighted material - therefore if the book you requires you pay the dues to the copyright owner we will only point you in the direction of purchasing a copy (paper or electronic).

Thats an old book (1972 with an update in 1978). I have never seen this as an e-book and doubt that you are likely to given its age. You should be able to pick up a cheap copy through ebay or an Amazon (~$5 if you are US based).

I have no idea when it will be completed. Should prove interesting at that future date.

I have hard copy of the book.. and still looks good. But I prefer e-book when I'm on my desk. I thought there's an available e-book that you might share, instead of scanning (thru scanner) all the pages then alter it to pdf format..

Sadly scanning it may be your only option given the age of the book - this is all Google will do when they create their on-line libraries.

Joe, does it say anything about restrictions on viewing, or the copyright conditions that will allow them to do this? I recall that when they tried to go ahead with Google Books, they had all sorts of legal issues with what they were doing.

As you all may know University libraries are not available to the general public. Despite enormous amounts of public funding only people with a valid student/staff/faculty ID may check out materials. It may be possible to occupy space in the library, view the materials, and pay $0.10/page to use the copier, but that hardly qualifies as convenient. #### Dave Joined Nov 17, 2003 6,970 As you all may know University libraries are not available to the general public.

The cost of many 'specialist' books explains firstly, why public libraries do not purchse such books in the first place and secondly, why university libraries enforce the strict borrowing rules that they do. It is not uncommon (in the UK) for universities to restrict access to library books by allowing only internal borrows, i.e. the book must not leave the confines of the library and adjacent study rooms.
