I think, having some formal training as a librarian, and seeing the
way these things tend to play out, that except in very few
circumstances, a library would be a better choice for obtaining this
content than the indirect theft that is P2P networks. Most countries
have very progressive libraries, even in countries that are not
progressive. Getting access to quality technical books is possible.

Libraries, however, are typically terrible at promoting themselves.
