Interlibrary Loans (ILL) and Document Deliveries
Interlibrary lending, led by Barb Neyman, helps us locate, acquire, and deliver specialized information to VDOT employees in ways that are more effective than if we were to attempt to acquire, catalog, and store all needed publications. In the past 5 years we have averaged 7 loans per quarter to other libraries, while borrowing an average of 35 items per quarter. In FY20Q1 we received an unusually high 73 requests, of which we filled 5. In FY20Q2 we had received 86 requests, of which we filled 8. This quarter we set a new record of 109 request or which we filled 9. Due to the pandemic, we have turned off our OCLC ILL lending symbol until we believe we can access collections and process materials safely.
This quarter the library requested and received 15 total items from other libraries. 9 libraries worldwide lent items to our library, 8 of our requests were supplied by academic libraries, 6 from state libraries, and 1 from a federal library. Items requested were from libraries in 8 different states. 10 of the requests were filled as hard copy (books/reports) and 5 as photocopy/digital/ fax (articles, chapters, excerpts).
This quarter we received 109 requests from 80 libraries in 34 states and 1 foreign country (Sweden). We supplied 9 items total. Of the items we loaned, 5 wee sent to academic libraries, and one each to federal, private, states and other types of libraries.
