I’ve been keeping an eye on Worldcat as libraries — mainly at universities — acquire copies of my book. For a complete list, follow this link. I’m very pleased to report that seven months from the date of its publication, my book is now in more than 100 libraries. Those copies are spread across 34 U.S. states plus the District of Columbia, as well as four countries outside the United States — Australia, Canada, Germany, and the United Kingdom.
My book has made it into some wonderful university collections, including those at Harvard, Stanford, Princeton, Wheaton, Marquette, Cornell, Berkeley, Rice, and even the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy! I’m sure there are copies in municipal and other non-academic libraries as well, but I don’t know of any way to get a handle on that information. I do know it’s in the U.S. Library of Congress and in the British Library.
If you live in a U.S. state which doesn’t have a copy (at least, not one registered in Worldcat), then please contact a librarian and request that s/he purchase the book. Those states are Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Hawaii, Idaho, Kansas, Louisiana, Minnesota, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oregon, Rhode Island. I know students, professors, and even librarians in some of these states. I won’t name names, but I will say, tsk! If you are reading this and can help get my book into another library, please do. :)
