Interlibrary Loan Best Practices for Wyoming Libraries

Introduction

Interlibrary loan is a service to patrons and not intended to replace collection development. It is a tool that can balance unequal distribution of resources in Wyoming. All libraries across Wyoming are encouraged to lend as freely as possible. The desired outcome is liberal interlibrary lending among participating libraries. This Best Practices document is designed to give library staff guidelines necessary for the best use of interlibrary loan services. It provides a common understanding for libraries.
