SCLS Interlibrary Loan (ILL) Committee


Minutes of the October 15, 2008 meeting


Present:  Amy Bedessem (POR), Katie Conway (BAR), Rollene Marslender (STP), Pearl Mosier (SUN), Patty Steele (MFD), Heidi Oliversen (SCL), Beth Price (MAD), Cheryl Becker (SCA).

July minutes:  Accepted. 


Baraboo Patron Initiated Requesting:

Katie reported that in early September Baraboo patrons started initiating their own requests on OCLC. Approximately 15-20 people are using the system with 70-90 requests per month. The Baraboo library has publicized this service with a display in the library, handouts, and an article also appeared in the local paper.


ILLiad is an interlibrary loan management software program that will help Madison ILL manage ILL requests. SCLS libraries will notice changes in the request form in WorldCat Resource Sharing.  The lending side is fully operational; they are still working out the borrowing side.  Libraries will be kept posted.  There is also a statewide ILLiad user group forming.

Updates, concerns, etc. from members:

Next meeting:  January 14, 2009

Compiled by Rollene Marslender, STP.
