I am currently work on a senior project trying to prove for semisimple Lie groups, $R(T)$ is a free module over $R(G)$ by computing an explicit basis for all the A,B,C,D cases. The canoical reference is a paper by Pittie( H.V. Pittie: Homogeneous vector bundles on homogeneous spaces, Topology II (1972) 199-203), but I could not find it online or in any books available in the library. Steinberg generalized Pittie's statement in his paper (Robert Steinberg, On a theorem by Pittie, Topology Vol. 14. pp. 173-177. Pergamon Press, 1975, Printed in Great Britain. Received 1 October 1974).

Since they already proved this in the past, I would like to see their papers before I finish my project, even if at some monetary cost. But I could not access either of them. Not knowing their work would not hinder my research, for I work in a much more elementary level than they did, but I think their work might be related to my eventual results and I should acknowledge in case they proved some formula I proved again on my own. So I want to ask where I can find them in paper or electronically. I can read parts of Steinberg's paper via google books, but I would like a pdf file or something (so I may check).

ADDED:

With advisor's help and the links provided by all the people below, I retrieved the two papers.

ADDED:

Received Steinberg's replying email. He notes "A correction should be made on p.175, line 6 ( which starts with "Consider now ") by putting the exponent "n sub a" on the item over which the product is being taken.The paper by Pittie appears in Topology, vol. 11, 1972, pp. 199-203, and, if I remember correctly, does not contain an explicit basis for the quotient. " This is important so I put in here.
