Tentative Topic: What Does Electronic ILL Mean to You?

Monday, January 23, 2012 - ALA MidWinter Meeting, Dallas Texas - Room TBA


Tentative Topic/Abstract:  What Does Electronic ILL Mean to You?


Do you think you know everything there is to know about Interlibrary loan (ILL)? What is the difference between lending book versus journal content? What about ILL of electronic content? How is electronic ILL being addressed in site license agreements? What does the future hold for ILL borrowing practices? The Publisher-Vendor-Library Relations (PVLR) interest group invites you to join us for an informative and lively discussion with a step-by-step explanation of the ILL process, the current copyright issues surrounding ILL of electronic content, and views from the librarian, vendor and publishing communities about this important practice, and how it is evolving to meet the demands of the digital age.


We're still looking to complete the panel.  If you are interested in speaking, please contact co-chairs  Kim Steinle ksteinle @ dukeupress.edu and Liz Lorbeer at lorbeer @ uab.edu
