Adams, Carolyn; Ressel, Margret J.; Silva, Erin S.
Resource Sharing & Information Networks, v20 n1-2 p56-63 2009
This article provides a practitioner's guide to marketing user-initiated borrowing at the point of need. By reviewing interlibrary loan book requests and manually transferring them to an INN-Reach consortial system, Link+, the University of Nevada, Reno Libraries were able to successfully market the service, deliver materials faster, and save staff time and money. The article provides a detailed explanation and analysis of this procedure. (Contains 3 figures.)
