Comparing Apples to Oranges: An Investigation into the Validity of Interlibrary Loan Statistics

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
In an effort to understand the validity of self-reported Interlibrary Loan (ILL) statistics, University of South Carolina librarians developed a survey to determine how libraries classify, categorize, and report ILL data. In May 2016, we emailed all 116 Interlibrary Loan departments within the Association of Research Libraries with a request to complete our survey. We will discuss our results and the implications that these results have on the validity of reported ILL statistics. We will explore possibilities for expanding this research and argue for more standardized collection and reporting practices.
