The Library of Babel

My work on interlibrary loan and remote database querying is finally starting to pay off. I’m happy to announce that you can now retrieve a page from the Library of Babel at borges.rox.com. Working with such a large data set is a challenge, and there are a few bugs. I can specify the wall, the shelf, the book, even the exact page number, but I can’t figure how to specify the exact hexagonal room. Indeed, there seems to be no indexing scheme at all for the hexagons. If anybody figures this out, please let me know. There’s a particular book I’m looking for somewhat desperately.
