Inter-library loan is always your friend.  Basically, if it shows up in
you can have it sent to you from pretty much anywhere in the country.
But that's not really useful for journals and such-like that have high 
usage amongst your fellow students, unless you are a *really* good

I dunno if I'd hold up in a liberal arts program these days.  I have
at some of the lit crit that I had to read in grad school and it just
so...irrelevant...has nothing, really, to do with what goes on in the
real world.  Not that it doesn't have value, in the sense of intellectual
importance, just that it doesn't seem like it's something I could apply
myself to after living in the "Real World" for almost 20 years.

Although, I have to admit, I miss the "it changes every three months"
aspect of college *a lot*. :-D
