Thanks,
Those all sound familiar, but I was drawing a blank when confronted with the
question. It's different than my normal work.

I looked on the PIRA site and didn't find instructions for ordering the Dick
and Ray book, but if it is self published, it's not likely to get ordered by
the library. I'll suggest the other 2 from AAPT. (There is no getting the
profs to use the PIRA DCS when we don't have a person in place to organize
it. They are look for a book that is self contained, not referencing other
sources.) Did you have Dick and Ray's book on CD at one time in the
resource room?
