Dear Fellow Librarians:
It seems to me that the use of the list serve for ILL requests should be
limited to 1. audiotapes
3. multiple copies
Requests for individual titles should go to a library that has the title
as determined through MaineCat or Ursus or through the ARRC
Inter-Library Loan Offices which are set up to do inter-library loans.
Why ? Because using the list serve, while easy for the requesting
library, may send 20 or 30 librarians looking for a book,setting it
aside, e-mailing back that it is available, and then getting word that
the request has been filled.
What do the rest of you think?
