Profiles of Academic Library Inter-Library Loan Efforts is a series of profiles of the interlibrary loan efforts of six academic libraries or consortia:  the University of Wisconsin, Madison; Duke University, Northwestern, the University of Delaware, Claremont Colleges Library, a consortium of 7 colleges in Claremont, California, including Harvey Mudd College and Pomona College, and the Virtual Library of Virginia, a consortium of 70 academic libraries in Virginia, including George Mason University, the University of Virginia, Virginia Tech and many others.

Based on interviews with interlibrary loan departments heads and other top officials, the report examines leading edge efforts, including but not restricted to:

  • How libraries are addressing the innate interoperability between integrated library systems and ILL/document delivery platforms with an emphasis on new tools that allow disparate systems to communicate with one another
  • Efforts to maximize the inter-library loan of eBooks and manage copyright and other issues
  • Measures to replace older ILL management systems
  • The management of Purchase on Demand systems and their relationship with ILL
  • Outreach to ILL end users and how feedback from them informs acquisitions decisions
  • Emerging programs to increase the use of special collections through strategic use of ILL

The report was written by Rachel Gordon, Head of Access and Collection Services and Senior Lecturing Fellow at the Duke University Law Library.
