Answer

No. Some items just can’t be found. Genealogical materials, obscure reference items are sometimes impossible to fill. Newly published books (within the last 6 months) are generally difficult to get, because most libraries have restrictions on lending out newly-published items. Some large academic and public libraries charge an additional fee, as well, which may be prohibitive.
