I have been researching a topic that requires me to get copies of some ancient handwritten manuscripts from an out of state library. I emailed to ask if I could get a facsimile copy of certain part of the manuscript. (It would be about two pages.) They don't have it digitized, but they do have it on microfilm. They said I should get my library to borrow the microfilm on ILL (inter-library loan). But when I went to the local county library, they said they could only get anything that is found in one particular library in our state capital.
I don't have borrowing privileges in any other library besides the local county library. Has anyone encountered this problem before?
