Through the perspectives of interlibrary loan (ILL) specialists, this book examines what ILL departments are doing, the value of ILL librarians in the evolving library environment, and how library collections and services are being affected by new ILL policies.

* Taps a knowledge base of more than a dozen ILL practitioners who offer diverse viewpoints on all that ILL specialists can do to help connect people and information

* Enables library administrators, whose support ILL needs to succeed, to grasp how ILL is essential to fulfilling the information-sharing mission of all librarians

* Emphasizes how the ever-increasing interconnections between ILL and other areas of library activity behoove non-ILL librarians to be more aware of emerging ILL developments

Review quote

"This book would be an excellent textbook for pre-service librarians and could also provide a new perspective to seasoned librarians. Recommended for libraries with a large ILL department looking for different ways to enhance their department." - School Library Connection "A solid foundation for those learning about and seeking to improve resource sharing, this work will most benefit ILL [interlibrary loan] specialists and emerging librarians." - Library Journal
