I've been getting into InterLibrary Loan at work this week (I work in a library). My state is considered to be my "Interlibrary loan area". We have a database where we can find all the holdings of the other libraries in the state. A van drives around all the libraries in the state once a week. So once a week we can send books to other libraries, and once a week we get books from other libraries. This means that ILL can take 2 weeks or more - which is really inconvenient when you want the book NOW.

But it is also possible for the patron to pick up an ILL at the library that has the book - as long as the two libraries agree. I had a patron looking for a book on Lawn Mower Maintenance - and we didn't have it. We started looking at the database, and I let him peruse it because he knew what he wanted better than I did. He identified a book that the next town over had, I called that library, they did have the book on the shelf, and we arranged for him to go pick it up either later that day or the next day. I thought that was great (and so did he!). Once I picked up a Psych book 1300 miles away, because there wasn't a copy in my state, and I was travelling to this other area to visit my son. It took a little finagling to get all the paperwork done between the libraries (it is easier between two local libraries than between a tiny library in one state and an state university library in another...), but I got the book.

I've been looking around Brooklyn for the book. Even the colleges in Brooklyn don't seem to have it (!?). Maybe I missed a likely school though - if you can think of a nearby college that has a reasonable Psychology department you could check their library. Your library can do interlibrary loan with college libraries.

$57 is a lot, but I still find the book valuable (and I bought it 9 years ago). Or maybe your therapist has a copy that you can borrow??
