Book Description:

In their definitive new Interlibrary Loan Practices Handbook, editors Weible and Janke clearly explain
the complexities of getting materials for patrons from outside the library. 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.
