In April 2018, librarians of the Big Ten Academic Alliance developed the BTAA Principles and Protocols for Interlibrary Loan of Special Collections, agreeing to terms that will open up treasures long restricted to local viewing. See btaa.org/library/reciprocal-borrowing/special-collections for the text of the agreement.
ASERL and WRLC formed a study group and recently endorsed these principles as well. In this session, Brian Miller, Head of Interlibrary Services at Ohio State University Libraries, discusses how they have implemented these guidelines, including workflows, documentation, volume of requests, and lessons learned.
