Forms Updated December 2011
In order to determine ILL patterns and trends the State Library needs more exact data. For this reason starting with the Public Library Survey—’12 (collected in the spring of 2013) we will be collecting more detailed information. These forms are for you to begin to collect monthly data starting in January of 2012. School libraries will begin collecting ILL data using this form on the first day of the 2012-2013 school year. The data will be reported on the 2013 School Library Survey in the spring of 2013. Form Updated March 2013
A Recommended Practice of the National Information Standards Organization (NICO). Approved, January 2012.
The physical delivery of library materials is an integral component of the resource sharing process. The delivery community knows firsthand the power of resource sharing as it handles millions of items that are being shipped between cooperating libraries. Borrowing between libraries is cost effective, and our goal is to make the delivery piece of the process as efficient and inexpensive as possible.
