Access to sources of information

The number in most pure sciences might not be very high, and I was not planning to do anything in this direction--for one thing, the costs will be prohibitive. The number of people who need papers from the sort of resources I have been thinking about, the general purpose ones in the humanities and social sciences and newspapers and the like, is significant. Look at any AfD, where people say I found this paper, and it should be relevant, but I have not read it. My estimate is that at least half the references to general articles from these sources are made by people who have not been able to read the article.
