Interlibrary Loan Clarification

There seems to be some confusion about interlibrary loan services. Section 3.18 of the Library Commission Administrative Rule requires libraries receiving state aid (GIA) to share resources with other libraries in the state according to local interlibrary loan policy and guidelines endorsed by the Library Commission.

The requirement is in place so patrons can receive this basic service at every public library in the state. The local interlibrary code may specify local procedures for interlibrary loan but the service must be available. If you have any questions about interlibrary loan practices, contact Karen Goff.
