The ALA RUSA MOUSS Interlibrary Loan Committee formed five working groups at the 2001 ALA Midwinter. These groups worked during the Spring of 2001 and presented the following reports at ALA Annual 2001 in San Francisco.
The ILL Committee discussed their reports and agreed that the working groups should continue. For information on the ILL Committee please visit the ILL Committee's home page.
Chair - Rick Uttich
How would UCITA affect interlibrary loan/document delivery amongst us? This working group will develop information that could be used by individuals to demonstrate how UCITA will affect interlibrary loan service to our patrons. This information could be used to share with state legislators and others to understand the impact of UCITA.
Union List of Serials Chair - Marilyn Grush
We re-connected last ALA Annual with ALCTS Serials Section, Union List of Serials Committee. This working group, which will include several members of this ALCTS Committee, will brainstorm on ways for our committees to work together.
Virtual Member Chair - Naomi Sutherland
RUSA has been experimenting with how to include "virtual" members on committees. What can the ILL Committee do to include this official committee member who typically can't attend ALA meetings? Things we establish for this virtual member may also benefit others in the ILL community interested in participating in our activities.
The group was thanked for its work and disbanded in 2001.

Web Available ALA Request Form Chair - Douglas Hasty
This working group will explore how the ALA request form is available on the web. As someone on this list pointed out, there is a version on the ALA website. Is that good enough? Should we recommend doing something different?
Liaison to Licensing Entities Investigation Chair - Angela Wright
Licensing is having a growing impact on resource sharing. This working group will investigate what liaison connections we need with other groups to keep each other informed.
