Library Quarterly Report FY17 Q2: October-December 2016

Interlibrary Loans (ILL) and Document Deliveries

No library can acquire, catalog and store ALL publications that might be needed, and it's never a good idea to try to do so.  That's where Interlibrary Loans, managed by Barb Neyman, comes in.  The ILL and Document Delivery service helps quickly locate, borrow and deliver rare and hard-to-find publications. The library continues to be a net borrower and uses OCLC software to efficiently place and receive loan requests from thousands of libraries worldwide. The library is able to offer this service to all VDOT employees.
