If someone wants to interact with like minded researchers they can easily
post an introduction to their work.  That worked exceptionally well for
me.  Melbourne University is about 10-15 minutes walk from the Victorian
State Library.  After a 30 minute or so wait one can have the journal in
their hands to photocopy the article of relevance.  Also, what ever
happened to interlibrary loans?  I can understand someone from an
underdeveloped country asking for assistance but not Australia and not
for such a common journal.  If everytime I wanted a particular paper that
was not in my university library this list would soon become very cluttered.
