Wisconsin Interlibrary Loan Guidelines. Second Edition. Bulletin No. 3107.
Wisconsin State Dept. of Public Instruction, Madison. Div. of Library Services.
No major substantive changes from the 1980 guidelines for interlibrary lending in Wisconsin are made in this edition, which outlines the interlibrary loan responsibilities of borrowing and lending libraries; the operating assumptions, principles, and goals of the interlending program; the steps for developing area interlibrary loan plans; and the recommended interloan patterns for public, school, academic, special, and health science libraries in the state. It is noted that the second edition reaffirms the importance of area resource sharing, multitype library cooperation, a hierarchical interloan structure, and direct access to specific interloan collections. Changes noted include a recommendation that area interloan plans be reviewed and updated on an annual basis; an expansion of information on out-of-state interloan requests; a recommendation that area plan contact persons be asked to meet annually to discuss interlibrary loan problems, issues, and concerns; and an expansion and clarification of information to be included in area plans. Appendices provide lists of the membership, goals, and objectives of the Statewide Committee on Interlibrary Loan and Reference Referral Patterns in Wisconsin and a county map showing interlibrary loan areas.
