ILLINET Interlibrary Loan Code Illinois State Library


Since 1975, ILLINET (Illinois Library and Information Network) member libraries have enriched and contributed to improving access to Illinois' library collections by collaboratively supporting and expanding resource sharing within the state, including interlibrary loan services and both statewide and systemwide reciprocal borrowing. The sustainability of Illinois' strong heritage of excellent library service depends upon an ongoing commitment to resource sharing, delivery and statewide cooperation. The ILLINET Interlibrary Loan (ILL) Code is the declaration of that commitment, without which, the actions of the thousands of Illinois library staff that support its use, the broader concept of resource sharing and, more specifically, services like delivery, would not be feasible.

In 2014, the ILLINET ILL Revision Committee revised the ILL Code to reflect current practices and to include current technology. The revised ILLINET ILL Code became effective April 1, 2015. In addition to their work on the ILL Code itself, the committee produced an ILL Code Checklist and a list of ILL Best Practices to assist librarians in the field. Illinois libraries are also required by administrative rule to comply with the ILLINET ILL Code as a condition of library system membership.
