Australia Mountaineering Library 16-Sep-2022 At 1:51:06 PM IdratherbeclimbingM9
Yes, itís a sad conundrum where the passionate often canít get their hands on historical classics, yet institutions undervalue them.

I donít know how many other people peruse 2nd hand book shops, but Iíve found good mountaineering and associated research material to be almost unobtanium. I gather from the proprietors that if they come across good stuff that it doesnít last long as there is a demand for it.
I once paid triple price for a Sierra Club publication that I remember being cheap as chips back in the day when I bought a copy for a friend, and years later decided I wanted my own.

To be continued Ö

* Do libraries take book collections for long term, and still have them accessible to public?
- only State or National and can only be read in the library.
* The National library (Canberra) is the go to for Australian published books. They have a copy of every Australian book published. If you produce a book Deuce4, then thatís a good place for it to end up.
* Trove website (database) lists all books available to the public from any library in Australia, provided itís currently available on a library shelf. Be aware libraries turn over their collections and remove off Trove unavailable books.
* Some large libraries employ Research Librarians and it comes down to their discretion (and available space), if they accept items to ĎStackí. Stack items arenít easily available to general public but can be accessed with appropriate protocols.
