ILL Borrowing Workflow Prioritization
This presentation will discuss how Millersville University prioritizes ILL workflow through various systems to fill requests efficiently, quickly, and with little staff. The use of ILLiad add-ons and custom queues to move borrowing requests through disparate systems in a prioritized fashion, with little staff intervention, allows us to process a high volume of requests with only two staff members and a handful of student employees. The discussion will center on book/returnable borrowing, reasons for the priority of each system/process, and our general philosophy of resource sharing. Discovery systems and article borrowing will briefly be highlighted.

Strategic Library Partnerships: More than Books - Lending Biomolecular Models
For nearly 15 years, the Walter Schroeder Library and the Center for Biomolecular Modeling (CBM) at the Milwaukee School of Engineering (MSOE) have collaborated to maintain the MSOE Model Lending Library, a unique collection of physical models of proteins and molecular structures, created by the CBM using 3D Printing Technology. These models are available for short-term loans to educators nationwide for use in K-12 and college classrooms to help students understand complex science concepts. Learn how the Walter Schroeder Library leverages library practices and procedures to manage the collection and how this strategic partnership enables both departments the opportunity to contribute to MSOE's scientific and technical educational outreach efforts.
