Jesus Espinoza - Interlibrary Loan in the ever-changing Academic Library - BOBCATSSS 2017

  1. 1. INTERLIBRARY LOAN IN THE EVER-CHANGING ACADEMIC LIBRARY BOBCATSSS 2017 Tampere, Finland January 25-27, 2017 Jesus Espinoza
  2. 2. Topics • Introduction • eBooks and ILL • Occam’s Reader • Scholarly Piracy • Open Access • Marketing and Outreach of ILL • Conclusions and Recommendations
  3. 3. Introduction • What impact have ebooks, the increasing availability of electronic material, and shrinking library collections had on interlibrary loan departments in academic libraries?

  6. 6. eBooks and ILL • Libraries have less latitude to lend from their collections, even as methods of transmitting documents physically and electronically are constantly improving. This restricting trend is dangerous because patrons are able to discover that materials exist outside of the library like never before and then learn that they cannot access the information — further bolstering the popular misbelief that libraries cannot meet the information needs of today’s patrons (Gee 24).
  7. 7. Occams’ Reader • Occam’s Reader is a platform developed to enable the interlibrary lending of eBooks. • Developed at Texas Tech University and the University of Hawai'i at Manoa in collaboration with the Greater Western Library Alliance . • Currently available at 21 universities; over 500 transactions in 2014 alone. • Cons: inability to print or download books, publisher concerns, unclear if there are any patron privacy issues.
  8. 8. Scholarly Piracy • In a time where so much content is available freely and instantly online are potential patrons really going to spend the time to look for that content via their library or by submitting an ILL request? Sci-Hub and #icanhazPDF are to the scholarly community what Napster and other p2p sharing were to the music industry.
  9. 9. Scholarly Piracy Solutions? • Libraries should leverage their combined collections with other libraries • Reciprocal lending agreements and redundancy reduction
  10. 10. Open Access • One might expect similar findings on the growing availability of open access material as with scholarly piracy. However, open access material is not always easy to find. • ILL requests for open access material at Indiana University–Purdue University Indianapolis more than doubled between 2009 and 2013 (Baich 72). These requests may lead to staff actually locating and downloading said material instead of pushing the request through, however they’re beneficial because requests are being filled at a fast rate and at a low cost (Baich 74), • These benefits culminate in an increased value of ILL in an academic library setting.
  11. 11. Marketing and Outreach of ILL Services • UC Santa Cruz’ ILL department has made it a top priority to focus on the marketing and promotion of its services, especially towards the undergraduate population which make up the smallest percentage of ILL users. • UCSC has seen a significant increase in borrowing requests. It is unclear if this will become a growing trend in academic libraries or if UCSC is unique in this aspect.
  12. 12. Marketing and Outreach of ILL Services Methods • Having booths at incoming student orientations • Giving short presentations during welcome week activities • Working with other departments to ensure that information about ILL is included in library tours and information sessions. Results • UCSC has seen a significant increase in borrowing requests.

  14. 14. Conclusions Interlibrary Loan and Resource Sharing units can redefine ILL’s place in the academic library and raise the library’s profile as the heart of the academic community by focusing on: • marketing and outreach • increased collaboration between departments • leveraging shared collections • striving towards a viable librarian-patron-publisher pleasing platform for lending eBooks
