Developing an Interlibrary Loan Policy for the David O. McKay Learning Resources Center at Ricks College, Rexburg, Idaho. Governance and Management.
Southwick, Neal S.
When this practicum was undertaken, Ricks College had no written policy governing its interlibrary loan service and was entering into a new service called facsimile transmission which had the potential of multiplying interlibrary loans greatly, thereby escalating existing problems and frustrations. Other libraries' policies were studied and meetings were held with appropriate library personnel to obtain input and suggestions before the policy was written. Out of the study came not only the formal policy but some recommendations which included further studies dealing with cost factors of interlibrary loan versus collection development and storage, an in-depth look at the facsimile transmission service, the development of an interlibrary loan procedures manual, and an evaluation of the interlibrary loan policy developed by this study within three years. The eight appendices include copies of the Ricks College Interlibrary Loan Policy and borrowing policy sheets, as well as the National Interlibrary Loan Code and those of several other institutions.
