Medical Sciences Library (MSL) at Texas A&M University offers ILL services to its affiliates free of charge. Like many other libraries, ILL staff first try to borrow from free libraries to keep the borrowing fees as low as possible. However, copyright fees are often higher than the charges of borrowing an article. To offset the copyright charges and maintain the free service, a new plan was devised by the librarian overseeing ILL. After consulting with the director, an acceptable range of copyright fees was chosen for each patron group (undergraduate, graduate, staff, faculty). This breakdown was forwarded to staff and they were asked to follow a series of steps when copyright needs to be paid for a request. This poster will explain the steps in detail and provide the outcome.
