Corinne Nyquist is an expert and an authority on interlibrary loan (ILL) and resource sharing. She explores many aspects of ILL in depth in this book. Beginning as well as experienced ILL staff will learn much from her. -- Judy Fischetti, member services librarian, Southeastern New York Library Resources Council
Library school students usually only hear about resource sharing topics in passing. New librarians as well as seasoned practitioners who accept positions in interlibrary loan often feel at sea learning both the broad concepts as well as the operational details with little direction from supervisors unfamiliar with the daily routine. Nyquist's book is an essential guide through the maze of topics related to contemporary resource sharing. -- Suzanne M. Ward, Head, Collection Management, Purdue University Libraries
Nyquist addresses the need for helping library staff and supervisors learn best practices, resources, and obligations of sharing library resources in the context of current technology. Her topics include teaching one another interlibrary loan since the library schools do not do it, how to get the Online Computer Library Center (OCLC) to listen to librarians, do not just say 'no' when faced with rules and policies, whether to buy or borrow to get what the patron needs, confusing and difficult problem or question, and taking responsibility at the local level. * protoview.com *
