Anyone know if there are libraries in the area of Somerville, Cambridge, or Boston that carry medical journals and allow the public in to read & photocopy them?
I'd like to review a bunch of articles from Sleep Medicine Review, Human Neurobiology, The Journal of Sleep Research, plus a couple of others. Optimally, I'd like to photocopy certain articles in their entirety to take home and read.
(Yes, I've already determined that these journals do not have full articles available online; at least, not for less than $30/article or a subscription to the journal for $195-$265/year, which just happens to include online access to articles. I found a pile of OTHER journals that DO have articles online - many for free, at least one for $5/article - and I've bought/downloaded those articles.)
I've been searching PubMed for articles related to sleep, ADD, periodic limb movement disorder (AKA Restless Leg Syndrome, RLS), deep sleep deficiencies, hypersomnia, etc. trying to get a handle on whatever the fuck is wrong with me. What I normally do when reading a pile of research only slightly related is look for reference articles that might be more related or have a higher-level viewpoint on the problem. I have 8 articles to pore over already, but I'm tempted to look at a bunch of TOCs for the sleep journals I've found & see if anything rings my bells. Currently not so easy to do online.
P.S. I'm pretty sure melatonin gives me a raging headache, so please don't recommend it.
