Interlibrary Loan Turnaround Time: A Study of Performance Characteristics of the University of California, Berkeley Interlibrary Loan Lending Operation.
Martell, Charles R., Jr.
Data from the interlibrary loan lending office files at the University of California, Berkeley for 1971-1972 were examined in order to determine the pattern of interlibrary loan traffic with other University of California and California State Universities and Colleges (CSUC) in Northern California. Turnaround time for the average Sacramento State College request to Berkeley was more than 20 days. Other CSUC campuses had similar delays for comparable processing intervals. These results indicate a need for significant changes in current interlibrary loan procedures before the implementation of a dedicated interlibrary loan delivery system based on a 24-hour turnaround time.
