I think, and rightly so, that people don't want to know about what they can't 
have. But if we know what isn't accessible, we can help to make it accessible. 
That's all.
  I know if there is a book a library won't loan out through ILL, it only makes 
me want that book more. Of course, I can buy the book if I truly want it bad 
enough. With the NIMAC books, people who don't qualify can't have them, and not 
only can't they have them, they can't just go out and buy it like I could.
  I wouldn't necessarily add them to the books list, the new books list I mean, 
if people don't want that, but I'd keep a list of them somewhere and see if 
they are worth scanning.
  Textbooks, while there may be a desire for them, probably aren't going to be 
high on anybody's scan list. They're so hard to scan. But other books, they may 
be worth looking into.
