Library Quarterly Report FY20 Q3: January-March 2020


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.

  Libraries We Borrowed From: 15 Transactions
