NYSILL: The New York State Interlibrary Loan Network.
New York State Library, Albany.
In order to make the information resources of New York State more accessible to researchers, the New York State Library instituted in April, 1967, a pilot experiment in compensated interlibrary loan, involving major public libraries and subject resource libraries. The collections of these libraries supplement the State Library in its service to the public; each is reimbursed on a per item basis for materials which they lend. The State Library serves as the referral agency for Area Referral Centers and Subject Referral Centers and as the hub and monitor of the interlibrary loan transactions. This document explains the structure and operation of the New York State Interlibrary Loan Network (NYSILL), who may use the services, how to use them, and what materials may or may not be obtained through the system.
