Free access to Cadillac Service Manuals

Hi Cadillac friends,

On the sub forum Cadillac Club Sweden we have had very good help to access Service information quite some time now on the following link, which we got from a member on this forum. http://www.sjcpls.org/content/databases

I'm sorry to say that it doesn't seem to work any more. You bump into a message that says: Please contact your library administrator to obtain a Patron ID.

It doesn't seem possible for me to obtain such an ID from a foreign country. Anybody knows how to work around the problem?

Nope...the door is not closed..."IF" you live in in St Johns County Florida...which is San Augustine, FL.. it is all free.

I just talked to a nice lady named Karen, at the library.

If you "DO NOT" live in that county...You can get an access card for $10.00 for three months or $40.00 a year.

But....There isn't any way at this time to do it online.

You have to do it in person.

I politely but "STRONGLY" suggested... :D:D ... that they implement an online system of registration for people that do not live within driving distance of that county.

Libraries do not own the electronic databases they make available; they lease the data from various service providers.

The various service providers can and do include data lease contract language terms that effectively prevents one county library system (in Florida, for example) from providing access to the data to residents of another (distant) county, another state, another country.

This contract language protects the investment of the service provider. The service provider must have the ability to lease to more than one customer in order to generate a profit and remain in business. Without profit, the online database will go away forever.

Folks using far distant library access to electronic data are stealing services from the service provider. You can bet the service provider will tighten up the lease contract and possibly take legal action against folks who post access information on the Internet.
