If the serials are Catholic in nature would the Vatican Library or archives prehaps know where you could get issues to fill vacancies in your collection?

I don't know that much about the Vatican, their Library or their Archives, but it may be worth a look-see on the internet to get an E-mail or Snail mail address and just drop them an inquiry.   Something like: "You wouldn't happen to know where we could g
et copies of the following issues?"  Just prehaps they would never know until you ask.

Subject: Sources for back issues over 25 years old?

Can anyone suggest dealers who are particularly successful with older
issues? -- and I do mean OLDER!

It's summer project time again and one of my projects is to try to
the very old incomplete volumes which have survived our weeding process.
These are mostly 20- to 100-year-old volumes with additional volumes
7 and 20 years old.  Subject areas are mostly religious studies (emphasis
Catholicism), philosophy, literature, history and social sciences. And, of
course, the reason they're still incomplete is that we couldn't find the
issues to complete the volumes during the first 5-7 years after
"Hard cases."

I will automatically try USBE, Hawkeye and the publisher (if still in
business). I may also try BACKSERV, but issues available there are rarely
this old.
After that, if I haven't gotten the issue(s), I'm wondering who to try
Any suggestions would be appreciated, especially if you've had experience
with this sort of project.

Thanks in advance for your help!
