Interlibrary Loan Photocopying among OHIONET Instititions: A Study Encompassing Its Nature and Various Practices, with Special Emphasis upon the Cost Factor in ILL Photocopying and Reactions to Proposed Cooperative Cost Containment Programs.
McCabe, Timothy J.
In November 1984, surveys were mailed to the 215 interlibrary loan coordinators of OHIONET institutions asking them to participate in a study of interlibrary loan (ILL) photocopying practices and procedures. Questionnaires were returned by 152 coordinators for a response rate of 71%. The study focused on the use of various tools in the selection and ordering of ILL photocopies (e.g., union lists, the OCLC ILL subsystem, and the OCLC Name-Address Directory); the nature and amount of ILL activity of these institutions; and the factor of cost in the ordering and the supplying of ILL photocopies. The reactions of ILL personnel concerning possible participation by their libraries in proposed cooperative ILL photocopy cost containment programs were also solicited, as well as their attitudes toward the role of the library association in fostering ILL cost containment programs. Respondents were given the opportunity to comment upon any of the topics covered in the survey. A general summation of the study with recommendations for future study are included in this detailed report. (Author/THC)
