Spencer, they have valid concerns:

"SEARCHING FOR THE 8th FLOOR
COLLECTIONS AND GENEALOGY?"
[at the Dallas Public Library]

"The 8th floor, home to History and Social
Sciences and the Genealogy Section, will be
closed from May to December 2001 for
renovation construction. Below you will
find the new temporary locations for all
your favorite materials usually found on
the 8th floor."

Another alternative is found at:
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day
Saints: Mormon Family History and
Genealogy Search - LDS Family History
Centers, at:
http://www.dcn.davis.ca.us/~vctinney/LDS

LOOK FOR:
FHC Angel Lookup Requests
Salt Lake City LDS Lookup Requests.
http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~famsearch/LDS/index.html

"Since many of us either don't have the
resources necessary to take a trip to
SLC, or other reasons prevent us from
doing so, this page has been developed."

It hasn't fully dawned on the genealogical
community, YET, but many Volunteer
opportunities for all ages (18+), such as
those listed at the Senior Citizens of
Greater Dallas, could include library lookups
for Genealogists and Family Historians.
http://www.scgd.org/pages/volunteer.html

The DALLAS PUBLIC LIBRARY,
Current Volunteer Opportunities, does not
include this category. See:
http://dallaslibrary.org/Volunteer-current.htm

DALLAS PUBLIC LIBRARY:
Library on Wheels, could also be used,
if permission were given to distribute
copies within the regional system.

I am not sure of the implication re get off
your bum and go to the library is another thread
or also from my recent question re the
whereabouts of Burkes Commoners, in an
ordinary library or a PRO Does anybody
know if the CD version of Notable British
Families 1600s - 1900s available from
TWR computing is a similar type of work
I apologise regarding the non medieval time
scale of the query, but if one if afraid of getting
a blasting for asking questions then there is
no point in researching genealogy.
Thanks for your patience and valuable time.
