Illinois Library and Information Network (ILLINET)

The Illinois Library and Information Network (ILLINET), established in 1975, is a statewide library alliance, representing over 5,000 academic, public, school and special libraries that comprise Illinois’ Regional Library Systems (RLS). With the support of the Illinois State Library and the RLS, ILLINET libraries collectively provide a strong foundation for statewide resource sharing, in order to meet the diverse information needs of Illinois citizens.

The online consortial catalogs, known as Local Library System Automation Programs (LLSAPs) and the Illinois Statewide Library Delivery Service (ILDS) are key components of statewide resource sharing. Administered by the RLSs, LLSAPs contain the holdings of ILLINET library collections, and provide access to circulation and interlibrary loan services. Online access to library collections, coupled with statewide delivery ensures a strong network of resource discovery and fulfillment throughout Illinois.

ILLINET Interlibrary Loan Code

In 2014, a committee composed of librarians throughout the state convened as the ILLINET Interlibrary Loan Code Revision Committee. This committee revised the Interlibrary Loan (ILL) Code to reflect current practices and to include current technology. Their revisions of the ILL Code stand in the ILLINET Interlibrary Loan Code [23 Ill. Adm. Code 3030.Appendix A] effective April 1, 2015. In addition to their work on the ILL Code itself, they produced a ILL Code Checklist and a list of Best Practices to assist librarians in the field.
