Convention 2013 Mobile Library

We bring the Reference Library to you! Well, some of it anyway. The Moblie Library includes a range of titles (mostly hard-to-find, foreign or out-of-print) from our collection. They will be available for careful browsing and research during Convention.

You can also request specific books by filling out this form. Please note the Call Number as well as the book title and author as you will need them to fill out the form (one form per book). See a list of what is available in the reference library at the bottom of this page.

  • Requests for the Mobile Library are now closed.

You can request a time slot to visit the library (there will be a sign-up sheet at the Information Desk) but walk-ins will be welcome if there is open time.

The Mobile Library operates like a library reference reading room:

  • You'll peruse the printed catalog (we'll have a couple of copies),
  • Request specific books and sign each book in/out
  • No books can leave the room at any time
  • No food will be allowed in the room
  • Leave your belongings at the door
  • One book per person at a time
  • Nothing on the table except the book, a pencil, note/origami paper, and your digital camera or laptop
  • Archival gloves for handling anything old/irreplaceable

While stringent, these rules are to protect the collection, and we trust everyone will understand the need for them!

The final list of what will be in the Mobile Library will be posted here closer to Convention. Meanwhile, you can get some ideas by perusing the list from 2012.
