Does your library system have any numismatic books?

She also tells me that too many libraries rely on the internet for intellectual content given to patrons of the service. We all know that there ain't nothing like a hands on book to conduct research, but these modern sorts are quickly changing things.
My library has numismatic items mostly in the reference area. Plus periodicals in the magazine section.
Good suggestion! I do know libraries are doing this. I haven't asked about off site book depositories but I did check the online catalog on their website and they are not listed anymore.
Yep, I've gotten many numismatic books via interlibrary loans. A lot of books that I couldn't afford to buy for myself, and more that I didn't really need to own but wanted to read or reference for a specific reason.
The question is - why? If there's space, then why not fill it up?
And I definitely made extensive use of interlibrary loan! I basically went through the redbook systematically and asked them to order every single reference listed. Over the years between middle school and high school, I was able to read a pretty comprehensive numismatic corpus for free.
