I checked the catalogs for the Carnegie Library, and the LDS Library
Carnegie Main branch does not have them, but remarkably, the Sewickley
Branch has the first 2 volumes. Now, I know you' ve mentioned previously
that you don't live in PA, so that won't help you. BUT...
The LDS/Salt Lake has all 6 volumes; and they have them on CD, too. I could
not determine for sure if these 6 volumes circulate, though. Perhaps you
could email their customer service dept
) and ask if the volumes circulate, and if they do, then order them in to
your local FHC.
However, In the past I have requested copies (1-3 pages, 2-3 years ago) from
books/manuscripts that they have in Salt Lake and which do not circulate,
just by using a .pdf form :
("Ordering Copies by Mail : To obtain photocopies of a few pages from a book
or a few frames of microfilm or microfiche, please use the appropriate
Request for Photocopies form available on this site. Copies cost U.S.$2.00
each, with a U.S.$4.00 minimum charge. Please follow the instructions found
on the form.")
On the form, you specify what item you seek, and name the book. I even
remember over-paying, and getting a credit slip, which enabled me to do it
again a short while later. Couldn't be simpler! (and cheaper, especially if
you have to travel a goodly number of miles to go to your local FHC, which
in my case I have a choice of 2, both 15-25 miles away. That shoots a whole
day sometimes; Factor in your gas and lunch.)
