Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

A former associate director at the St. Mark's Library of the General Theological Seminary and current doctoral student at Rutgers University has written this volume for small and medium-sized libraries where there is no one person dedicated to document delivery and interlibrary loan (ILL). General practices for one-person ILL departments are also of value for newly assigned ILL librarians. Presenting time-saving hints and tips, templates for forms, and policy examples, Knox also provides a list of references in each chapter. Beginning with an overview of the essentials of ILL and document delivery, the work next addresses special challenges for small departments. Copyright law, ILL codes, and policies and procedures for lending and borrowing are also covered. The final chapters address delivery systems and “Going Paperless for Cheap.” This easy-to-read volume is a worthwhile addition to any library's ILL department. --Jay Freeman

Review

"Useful as guidance for any small or medium-sized library, the general practices for one-person ILL departments are also of value for newly assigned ILL librarians and the seasoned practitioner who wants to learn more...This easy-to-read volume is a worthwhile addition to any library's ILL department." --ARBA Online, March 2010

"This well-rounded book serves as a helpful guide to librarians who might be interested in adding [ILL and document delivery] services to their own libraries...It takes a realistic approach to what smaller libraries are able to offer in terms of ILL and document delivery services and offers advice to librarians developing these types of operations within their libraries. --College and Research Libraries, July 2010

"With its nine well-appointed chapters, two appendices, and an index, this work is essential for librarians newly assigned to interlibrary loan and document delivery (ILL/DD) responsibilities as well as ILL/DD librarians working in smaller libraries. This gem also provides information and tips useful to all librarians...Every library providing ILL/DD services needs to include this book in its collection." --Medical Reference Services, Quarterly, July 2010

...a hands-on user manual for those who have been newly assigned interlibrary loan (ILL) responsibilities in their library, or for those libraries that have to handle ILL transaction with little formal infrastructure to do so....This is a useful training tool for smaller libraries and for library schools wanting to teach students practical skills of the job. --SciTech Book News, February 2010

"More thorough than most primers on ILL, the book condenses a wealth of ideas into best practices, guidelines, and policies that help conserve resources while delivering quality ILL service...Even veteran practitioners can learn something new from reading any of the nine well-organized chapters or may keep the book on hand for future reference. Each chapter, featuring valuable reference lists, either stands alone or can be read in sequence." --Journal of the Medical Library Association, October 2010

"One of the greatest strengths of this book is that it discusses vital yet sometimes complex concepts in a way that is easily understandable, providing examples and pointing to references for more information. It is also very comprehensive...Another strength is the practical advice given..." --Journal of Hospital Librarianship, November 2010

"…this exceptionally helpful book is recommended for all small and even medium-sized libraries." --Catholic Library World, June 2011

...a hands-on user manual for those who have been newly assigned interlibrary loan (ILL) responsibilities in their library, or for those libraries that have to handle ILL transaction with little formal infrastructure to do so....This is a useful training tool for smaller libraries and for library schools wanting to teach students practical skills of the job. --SciTech Book News, February 2010

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback
Money is always an issue for libraries, but the things expected of a modern library often seem so out of reach. "Document Delivery and Interlibrary Loan on a Shoestring" is a library science guide for librarians who are trying to integrate these new features into their library without spending bankrupting their coffers. A guide to every step of the journey and how to penny pinch a lot of it, Emily Knox draws on her own experience and gives much legal advice that libraries must face before fully embracing these services as another feature of their library. "Document Delivery and Interlibrary Loan on a Shoestring" is a core acquisition for librarians who are faced with that ever decreasing budget but still want to offer everything a library can.
