     That's a moot point -- 8.6 only applies to electronic-only publication; 
Rob's booklet is published in hard-copy, old-fashioned paper format (Lulu.com 
notes that its binding is "Perfect-bound Paperback").  Therefore, it does not 
need to declare what libraries into which it has been reposited...though I 
certainly hope that it _has_ been thus reposited!  So far, though, there's no 
record anywhere on OCLC Worldcat, though that may well reflect a lag time 
between a library receiving the volume and when they get around to cataloging 
it...  Still, the cost is pretty low -- if you're going to order one, might as 
well order two and donate one to your local library!
