Interlibrary Loan Round Table

Introduced in August 2018, the Interlibrary Loan Round Table in Vermont includes librarians from public, school, and academic libraries. The group meets quarterly to discuss issues relating to interlibrary loan and to work together to highlight the importance of this service in the state. Within the first year, the group created a best practices list for interlibrary loan, customizable posters to promote interlibrary loan services, and is currently revising the Vermont Interlibrary Loan Code to be in line with current statewide resources and the most recent USA Interlibrary Loan Code.

 

Below are links to the resources created by this group as well as recordings of the meetings.
