ACRL Statistics Instructions: Interlibrary Loans (21-22)

OSULP Instructions: ILL Total Items Loaned (Q21) and ILL Total Items Borrowed (Q.22)

Per Kerri Goergen-Doll (Resources & Acquisitions)

For these questions, it is best to ask the ILL manager directly.

To anwser these questions use the number of filled requests not the number of requests received/sent. Do not include items filled locally through Scan & Deliver. Traditionally Summit items have not been included in these responses.

For Question 21 Total Loaned:
Ask the ILL manager for the Total Lended Filled items.

For Question 22 Total Items Borrowed (ILL):
Ask the ILL manage for the Total Borrowed Filled items
(Need to take the Total Borrowing Filled and subtract any Scan & Deliver items.)

ACRL ILL statistics

Using the RAS statistics for ILL that are collected on a monthly basis by Kathy Varbel, the totals used should be for requests that are filled for lending and borrowing.  The numbers should not include all requests submitted, nor include requests filled locally through Scan & Deliver.  

https://wiki.library.oregonstate.edu/confluence/display/CRSD/CRSD+Dept+Statistics

Based on the above, the following table lists the numbers for the last five years for Valley (Scan & Deliver had been subtracted where appropriate).
