"Through the area Bibliothecal Engineer, an emergency message was sent
to the chief himself, Mlvl Dwy Smth. Without hesitation, His Bibliothecal
Excellency pressed the master button on his desk and queried the Ix System for:
“Knowledge, Universal—All Rx-Drawers, Location of.” To his stunned surprise,
the answer came back: “See also C11F73I15.”
Frantically he turned dials, nudged quanta, etc. but it was
no use. Somewhere in the galaxy-size flood of Ix drawers was
the one and only drawer of Rx, the one that had once been
installed with great joy. It was somewhere among the Indexes,
Bibliographies, Bibliographies of Bibliographies, Histories of
Bibliographies, Histories of Histories of Bibliographies, etc.
A desperate physical search was started, but it did not get
very far..."
