Please forgive cross-posting.

As a federal agency, we have some difficulty purchasing from foreign
countries.  So I thought I would query the various lists about whether
other libraries (federal and non-federal) have like out-of-country
jobbers (or something other way?) of doing this.

I am familiar with Access Russia for obtaining Russian publications
through a US source.  Does anyone know is there is something similar for
other (specifically) Chinese publications.

I am not concerned here with obtaining ILL's, but possibly ILL'ers have
had some experience in trying to pay foreign invoices?

Any ideas will be greatly appreciated.  TIA.
