Other notes:
As is, I fear, too often the case, I'm making this request with too little
lead time. I'm simultaneously checking with Jeff Wilson in case the library
instruction room is unavailable. (Or, if coming in with so little warning,
I'm just simply out of luck, prima facie.) So, what I'm saying is that if I
can't get into the library tomorrow, it's entirely my own fault.
