Special Deliveries: Towards a Methodology for Generous Fulfillment of Special Collections Interlibrary Loan Requests
Griffin, Melanie; Schmidt, LeEtta
Public Services Quarterly, v13 n4 p241-259 2017
This article explores the implementation of special collections interlibrary loan policies and procedures at the University of South Florida (USF), focusing particularly on the development of policies related to physically loaning published materials, and traces the development of these policies through a pilot project to routinized implementation. Particular attention is paid to developing mutually beneficial workflows between special collections and interlibrary loan departments, creating transparent policies for the criteria under which requests are or are not filled, and technical considerations for implementing special collections loans. Through this case study, we highlight the potential for collaboration in the fulfillment of special deliveries.
