The Committee’s major project for the year was finalizing the “Guidelines for Interlibrary Loan Operations Management,” which has been under development since 2006. The guideline was approved at the ALA 2012 Midwinter Meeting in Dallas by the RUSA Standards and Guidelines Committee. The new guideline is available on the RUSA website.
Current guidelines that the committee maintains are the following:
|Interlibrary Loan Code for the United States Explanatory Supplement||Review in 2016 as part of the Interlibrary Loan Code|
|Interlibrary Loan Code for the United States||Review in 2016||Approved by S&G Midwinter 2009; approved by RUSA Board 2009 (according to RUSQ)|
|Guidelines for Interlibrary Loan Operations Management||Review in 2019||Approved by S&G Midwinter 2012; approved by RUSA Board 2012|
|Resource-Sharing Response to Natural Disasters||Review in 2017||Approved by STARS Annual Midwinter 2009; approved by RUSA Board Annual 2010|
Each guideline is reviewed every seven years and the committee had no other guidelines or standards to maintain this year.
