You can request access to just about any book, article, or physical media ever created--you just have to know about Interlibrary Loan. This service lets you borrow materials from other libraries, for no cost to you. 

Plan Ahead: Books and physical media usually take about 5-7 business days to arrive, and articles / chapters usually take 2-3 business days to be emailed to you.
