Re: [Videolib] Interlibrary loan of media items

ILL is a fairly routine process for us.

Of course, we don't loan titles which faculty have already scheduled for
classroom use. And we only ILL to other colleges and universities.

We loan with a short loan period, but account for shipping in both
directions. Loaned videos are charged to an internal account that does not
accrue fines, in order to override the timeline and charges for overdues
built in to our III circulation module.

We do not loan via ILL to local schools. Individual individual faculty can
obtain borrowing privileges via a purchased borrower's card.

It's essential to have a system in place that permits faculty to
book/schedule use of specific titles. This protects you (somewhat) from
complaints when the video essential to their instruction is on loan to
another school on the day they need it.

Hope this information helps.
