HI everyone,

 

I received a request from Lynne Serviss, a librarian at McMaster University to share the following survey from the ALA RUSA STARS International Interlibrary Loan Committee.  Please share with other library listservs in the Atlantic Region.  

 

Thanks,

The ALA RUSA STARS International Interlibrary Loan Committee is gathering information to better understand international interlibrary loan (ILL). Please help us by filling out this survey, which is available in the following IFLA official languages:       

     عربى  

    English

    Español

    Français

    Deutsch

    русский

 

Responses from all libraries are encouraged, regardless of whether you borrow or lend internationally. The number of questions will vary depending on which activities you currently perform, ranging from 10 to 40. It may take up to 25 minutes to complete.

 

The survey asks for numbers, so you may wish to gather the following data in advance:

1.    Number of ILL Borrowing and also ILL Lending requests you received within a recent (last three years) 12 month period (returnables and non-returnables).

2.    Number of International Borrowing and also International Lending requests you received within a recent (last three years) 12 month period  (returnables and non-returnables).

3.    The top five countries from which you borrow and also the top five to which you lend.

 The survey closes on Friday April 19th.

On behalf of the RUSA STARS International Interlibrary Loan committee, thank you for your time and assistance!

 

Thanks,
Lynne
