Commodore's Messenger Not In WorldCat Yet, But . . .

I have been searching Commodore's Messenger, from time to time at WorldCat.org with the intent of adding it to my list of books on Scientology. The book needs to be in a library that participates in WorldCat and that has catalogued the book for it to show up in a search on WorldCat. It hasn't arrived there yet but I think it's interesting that without mentioning anything else but the book title in the search, two of the five results have to do with Scientology.

One is an article in Marquis Who's Who about David Miscavige. A search on Google for Marquis Who's Who reveals that there is a series of books with mini biographies in them, and somewhere in one of those books, most likely Who's Who in America, there is a mini biography of David Miscavige.

A book has to be in a public library before WorldCat picks it up, so let the author know, so it can be donated to a local library.
Then maybe the library can notify WorldCat.
