  • Scripts Books in Libraries?

    Does anyone know of libraries that have copies of the Babylon 5 script books? I was a bit late in discovering that they existed, and can't really justify buying them at Ebay prices. But I would LOVE to take a gander at some of the extra features at least once, especially the volume 15 stuff. The Library of Congress seems to have a few of the volumes, but I'm wondering if there's a library that collects Hollywood material that might be more inclusive. And reachable for a west-coastie.

    Alternatively, does anyone display them at cons? I suppose they're treated like Holy Texts and kept away from the hoi polloi... Sigh.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi, BonhommeRichard, and welcome.

    I'm afraid I don't know about libraries. It doesn't seem unreasonable that perhaps a university library might have picked up a set as part of a film studies course perhaps but I've never heard of one.

    I've seen people bring some of the volumes to cons for autographs but I've never seen a display of them.

    Sorry, wish I could help more.

      Jan,
      If the script books have an ISBN number than one can search for them via the Wikipedia and World Cat.

      For example, this is the search for
      The Complete Book of Scriptwriting (Paperback)

      http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?...sbn=1582971587

      http://www.worldcat.org/search?q=isbn%3A1582971587
