Summary

The perfect introduction to interlibrary loan!

Interlibrary Loan and Document Delivery in the Larger Academic Library is primarily a practical handbook for library staff members who are new to interlibrary loan, the suggestions and resources it contains will also be valuable to experienced interlibrary loan staff. With the tremendous changes and innovative new technologies that have been introduced in the past few years, this essential book fills an urgent need in the library literature for an up-to-date interlibrary loan manual.

Based upon the policies and procedures of the interlibrary loan department at Rice University in Houston, Texas, this handy desk reference provides a case study of an actual ILL department as well as general suggestions for organizing and operating a modern ILL department.

Interlibrary Loan and Document Delivery in the Larger Academic Library: A Guide for University, Research, and Larger Public Libraries provides you with:
  • the latest, most up-to-date treatment of interlibrary loan available
  • a patron's perspective on ILL--what users want and expect from ILL services
  • an extensive list of resources for copyright information and updated information on copyright law as it applies to ILL
  • an extensive list of interlibrary loan resources
  • practical examples based on the real operation of an ILL department
  • helpful appendices and flow charts of the ILL process
  • an annotated bibliography and list of resources for further exploration
Designed primarily for librarians with little to no real practical experience in interlibrary loan, this book will educate readers about ILL and to provide a basic framework for evaluating an existing ILL operation or establishing a new one. It will also be a valuable reference for supervisors with responsibility for the ILL department, reference librarians, and experienced interlibrary loan librarians looking for expert, up-to-date information.
