I too, get tired of people's tirades against someone when they ask for
information that they have not been able to acquire in other manners.
Many of you on the list are lucky enough to be employed in or at least
geographically close to major research libraries. Some of us are not so
lucky. In my case, I am currently employed in a small liberal arts
school in rural Nebraska. Our library is lacking many resources, and the
nearest research library is five hours away. Before attacking someone
for not doing their research, maybe consider that not all people have
access to sources that you may. If you don't want to help, don't--but,
don't make this some agenda!!!!
