Missing Page Finders

From DPWiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

PMs, looking for some missing pages? Here's a more direct way of getting them! Here's how it works: below is a list of volunteers and their home libraries, with links to the catalogs. If you find a book with pages you need in their library, send a message to the appropriate volunteer and let them know. With any luck, they can pick up the book and get your pages for you ASAP.

Important: This page is user-maintained. Those who have not logged into the site in the last six months may be marked in italics, but many are not, if maintenance hasn't been done recently. By all means try to contact those in italics, who may still be able to help, even if they have less time for DP than they used to. However, be aware that replies may take some time, and that you might wish to contact someone else instead / as well.

Worldcat is a handy search tool that will help you find what libraries worldwide have the book you need, and you can then cross-reference the results there with the list here.

Online Computer Library Center (OCLC) codes are listed after libraries below in brackets (i.e. [LOC]) which are used by systems like Worldcat.

The Library of Congress Gateway to Library Catalogs links to many, many library catalogs, as well.
