    Hi Serolf,

    Most large libraries would have a 50/50 chance of having a copy of these books (but probably not the rarer early editions), as they are fairly well-known. Certainly, the large libraries in Greyhawk and Rel Astra and the university libraries in Rel Mord and Niole Dra would have a very good chance of having a copy.

    I've thought about doing an article on libraries as institutions but there are several pretty good d20 or other game books on libraries available.

    Scott's article is great for "in game" benefits. I thought about going that route but decided against it for two reasons:

    (1) IMC, the books have never had these kinds of benefits; it has more been about just the information in a particular volume; and

    (2) I wanted to distinguish books from magic items etc. and have books be interesting and valuable for their own sake.

    Scott's approach is certainly a good one and would be an excellent source for ideas if you wanted to provide particular "in game" benefits to any of these volumes.
