What I don't understand is that, if scanning or photocopying is an issue, they don't simply photograph the stuff (well, might be an idea for someone visiting the library and wanting to share some article).
Well, In some cases that might be a possible option.

The main problem of doing any major work like Rachel did is funding/support.
At 80-110 dollars per day just to sleep indoors in safety one needs lots of money....

I don't know how much a "summer" is (1 month or 2) but...

166 pages...
1 month...166 pages / 31 days... = 5.4 pgs per day

A Hotel (w/no food!) $100 / day for 5.4 pages....

So for someone not living in the area, more than $3000 for this pdf....
(not including the lost summer!)
