Re: Using the Jewish Encyclopedia as a Source for Further Info #hungary #rabbinic

When seeking books, one of the best online places to go is Worldcat.org, a
product of the library vendor OCLC which provides cataloging information
for thousands of libraries in the United States, Canada, Japan, and many
places in Europe. A search on the title Eben Shemuel revealed more book
information at:

https://www.worldcat.org/search?q=ti%3AEben+Shemuel&qt=advanced&dblist=638

Often (but not always) OCLC will indicate which specific libraries have
the book. In this case the first record showed a library in Zurich, and
the second record did not indicate a holding library. But since it's an
older book (1874) it probably doesn't show up because many libraries have
not yet converted their older records to an online format. I would
enquire of excellent Hebrew Jewish libraries near you and see if they have
the item. If that fails, you can always inquire of the library in Zurich.
