CHICAGO- Register today for the four-week asynchronous course “Inside Interlibrary Loan: Basics for a New Millennium” sponsored by the Reference and User Services Association (RUSA).

As library shelving and physical collections continue to vanish, electronic resource collections continue to grow. To keep up with evolution, we need to expand our Interlibrary Loan (ILL) services to meet the needs of our library patrons. In this four-week eCourse, you will learn to utilize ILL services to do just this.

Designed for MLS candidates, MLS graduates, librarians, library administrators, and paraprofessionals, this course teaches you everything you need to know about ILL systems, including nuts, regulations, and copyright issues surrounding ILL. You’ll also explore outlines of potential internal and external policies and procedures that your library can put into place and examine modern day challenges related to electronic resources.

Instructor Debra Lucas, has been the Head of Reference and Interlibrary Loan at D’Youville College in Buffalo, NY since 2002. She is the author of Marketing the 21st Century Library; the Time is Now, published by Chandos an imprint of Elsevier. She has been an online instructor in Library Studies since 2012.
