Many folks have asked for help regarding books and magazines. As a
reference librarian's best friend, I can offer this advice. If you are a
student at a university or college, you are able to access services like
ProQuest and FirstSearch. These are online data bases that, many times,
offer full text versions of the material that is offered in print. For
example, I can download anything that appears in Arts & Activities through
a simple search in ProQuest. School Arts only offers the abstracts, but
that's okay as I have most of the issues anyway and it sure saves time
thumbing through back issues and getting side tracked.

Interested? Ask your librarian, local, college or university level. The
reference desk is the best place to start. Advantages include doing
homework in your underwear!
