I am writing a research paper and need to access some data that was collected by someone long deceased. The university library that has this data is in another country, and has the data on microfilm. The data contained in the microfilm is a manuscript (not sure if that’s helpful).
How would something like this normally be handled for researchers who cannot visit the country in which the microfilm is held?
Is this a common issue for researchers?
Can microfilm be duplicated and sent over somehow, perhaps to another library?
