Have you ever used inter-library loan services? What sorts of materials were you looking for?
In the past I've checked out old newspaper microfilm from other states and from the State's Historical Society. Today I ordered a copy of the following article....
Russian Review: Vol 19, No. 1 (January 1960) for the article "Darwinism, Scientism and Nihilism".
I was pleasantly surprised to get a call from the local library saying that it was available and being ordered.
