Truths we had to accept
 We cannot be perfect!

   Turnaround time may be longer
   Quality may go down

 We cannot keep detailed records
 Students can do more
    “Staff” tasks can become student tasks
    Problem forms
    ILLiad routing rules

 Deflections are useful
    Better to deflect than to age
    Delivery of an article is counted in the turnaround time
Question everything

Custom holding tricks

   Look in OCLC Polices https://illpolicies.oclc.org
        Search for Group Affiliation

Reciprocal contracts
 A reciprocal contract is a binding written contract
 between two libraries to provide ILL services for free.
Reciprocal contracts
 Who should we offer the contract to?
    ALL AND ANY CHARGING LIBRARIES THAT CAN
     LEND!
 Send them anyway you can think of:
    By email
    By fax
    By mail
    To listserves
Reciprocal contracts
 Statistics on how much we have borrowed versus how
  much we have lent – do not predict future use if they
  are now free.
 Example: CLO is a $18 lender, we charged $15
   Pre-contract 2008:
  ISU lent 6 items at $15 , borrowed 1 at $18
   Post-contract 2010:
  ISU lent 3 items, borrowed 16 at no charge
Reciprocal contracts
Create a contract that has the following:
 Library information
 What will be free
 Contract expiration
 Signatures and Dates
Reciprocal contracts
  See example

Spending Time Pays Off: Checking
IFM
  Contact charging library and ask for a dummy request
     Charging library creates the fake request
     Charged library “fills” the request and charges the
      dummy amount
     Charging library updates to receive
