Kansas Interlibrary Loan Study.
Kansas State Library, Topeka.
This study was made to investigate new dimensions for a statewide interlibrary loan service and the means for financing an interlibrary loan service for Kansas public Libraries in fiscal year 1972. Some new dimensions considered worthy of investigation were: (1) inclusion of some system library headquarters as suppliers to a state interlibrary loan network, (2) investigation of American Library Association model interlibrary loan code, (3) study of the availability of resources for interlibrary loan service, (4) experimentation with out-of-state networks, (5) experimentation with use of union list of serials for going directly to source for serial requests, (6) analysis of costs of interlibrary loan service, (7) analysis of location of supplying interlibrary loan agencies on an interlibrary loan circuit and (8) study of types of materials requested on a network and the amount of duplication among the requests. These dimensions were explored by investigating the following aspects of the Interlibrary Loan Program for FY 1971: (1) placement of members on network based on availability of materials, time and staffing factors, (2) policy and procedure for acquiring serials directly from identified sources on the network, and (3) assessment of units interlibrary loan capability. The bulk of this study is presented in tables. (NH)
