Obtaining rare books and documents

The nation's library systems do have the ability to search and loan out materials from one public library to another... essentially checking them out from your OWN nearby library after they search for and obtain the materials.    Visit your local public library to see how this works but beforehand, you may be able to use your own public library's Internet Search system.
