Foreign library access help! (AMVAS)

I need some materials on my main work (not concerned with WW2) from foreign technical libraries. In Russia much foreign literature is TOTALLY unavailable or TOO expensive ($100+ per book and $5+ per article)
If anybody can help me?????

My paiment facilities are too poor
I can pay only ~$1-2 per article and ~$15-20 per book...

Re: Foreign library access help! (AMVAS)

Hi AMVAS, I can try to help. I have access to the Duke University Library in Durham, North Carolina, USA. This is a pretty good library with about 5 million volumes and many journal subscriptions. What sort of help do you need?

Re: Re: Foreign library access help! (AMVAS)

If your library have free access to its catalogs I can check if they have needed sources

For example, first of all I need the next:

1. The serie "Studies in Surface Science and Catalysis"
(homepage http://www.elsevier.nl/inca/tree/?key=B1SSC)
A few volumes therof (145,136,133,130,122,119(!),107,101....) As they are too huge I need table of contents to see what concrete articles I can use from them... My previous attempts to get them had failed.

And a few books

2.Title Methanol and isobutanol from synthesis gas / by Brandy Leigh Stephens.
Author Stephens, Brandy Leigh.
Date 1996.
Description viii, 117 leaves : ill. ; 28 cm.

3. Title Methanol production and use / edited by Wu-Hsun Cheng, Harold H. Kung.
Place/Publisher New York : M. Dekker,
Date c1994.
Description x, 326 p. : ill ; 24 cm.
Series Chemical industries ; v. 57
Chemical industries ; v. 57

Electronic form more preferrable, as postal delivery is too expensive (compatible with book prices)

For payments I can try to use E-gold or Western Union service....Maybe PayPal....
