Putting out a request: do you work for the University of Wisconsin-Madison Libraries? There’s a rare CD-ROM I’m looking for for research purposes, and it appears the only copy held in North America is in that library. Any help is appreciated. search.library.wisc.edu/catalo

The disc is Journey to the Source by Hong Kong explorer and writer Wong How Man, and documents his journey to the source of the Yangtze river. I’m very interested in examining it, but unfortunately I’ve never seen a copy for sale. Most copies are held by Asian institutions.

@misty Is there a reason you can't request it via interlibrary loan?

@misty have you checked over on /r/datahoarder? It's almost guaranteed that someone there has a copy.
