Foreword by Virginia Boucher, Professor of Libraries, Emerita, University of Colorado at Boulder

In their definitive new Interlibrary Loan Practices Handbook, editors Weible and Janke clearly explain the complexities of getting materials from outside the library for patrons. This collection presents a complete view of the interlibrary loan (ILL) process, with contributions from all areas of the technical services community, providing

 

  • Guidance on how to do ILL efficiently and effectively, with advice on how to be a considerate borrower and lender
  • Details of preferred staffing and management techniques, showing how best practices can be implemented at any institution
  • Discussion of important issues that can fall between the cracks, such as hidden copyright issues, and the logistics of lending internationally

Consortia and other library partnerships are now sharing ever larger fractions of their collections, and this book gives library staff the tools necessary for a smoothly functioning ILL system.

"...a thorough guide to the world of I.L.L. practice and most departments would benefit from having it as a guide."
— Public Library Quarterly

"A complete and comprehensive resource for any librarian trying to understand the details or implement such a relationship themselves with neighboring libraries, Interlibrary Loan Practices is an excellent resource that should not be overlooked for any librarian's own study."
--MIdwest Book Review

"Need a primer on Interlibrary Loan practices? This handbook is a good place to start ... Providing a good overview as well as nuts-and-bolts advice, this handbook will be useful to any librarian who lends or borrows through ILL, or as a textbook for library school students."
