Did You Know? Interlibrary Loan Lends Books WorldwideInterlibrary Loan & Document Delivery Services Posted: March 22nd, 2016
What do Amsterdam, New Zealand and South Africa all have in common? They’re all places where books from the UCF Libraries collection have recently traveled to via Interlibrary Loan!
UCF takes pride in being an international lender to help fill the academic research needs of foreign libraries. In fact, there are currently 312 international institutions that are registered to request UCF materials through Interlibrary Loan.
In the past year alone, Interlibrary Loan has filled over 100 requests from international borrowers, some of which pay large shipping costs to obtain valued UCF materials.
So, the next time you find yourself perusing a book from the library stacks, remember that it may have traveled far and wide, across the world and back again, to be in your hands now.
