Report of METRO Task Force to Study NYSILL.
New York Metropolitan Reference and Research Library Agency, NY.
This report examines interlibrary loan traffic in the New York City area and how it interfaces with the New York State Interlibrary Loan System (NYSILL), and recommends possible alternative methods by which the regional libraries might share resources. It is the final product of a special task force of the New York Metropolitan Reference and Research Agency and its conclusions and recommendations parallel those in a state report by the Commissioner's Committee on Statewide Library Development. The report includes the membership of the task force, demographic information on the city's population and libraries, the charge to the task force, conclusions and recommendations including a detailed proposal for a regional interlibrary loan system, the description of the study itself, the methodology used to profile the city's existing system and the current operations of NYSILL, and responses to 13 specific questions included in the original charge to the task force. Two appendices include a questionnaire--Survey of Interlibrary Borrowing by METRO Libraries, and questions sent to NYSILL/Albany--NYSILL Activities of Metro Area Libraries: Statistics 1981. (RAA)
