ISSN (printed): 1072-303X. ISSN (electronic): 1540-3572.
Many journals in reference services and academic librarianship occasionally publish articles on interlibrary loan as they relate to computers, OCLC, or other specialized areas. Now, here is a broad-based, practical, yet professional journal that interlibrary loan librarians in North America and abroad can call their own. In order to reflect the growing importance of document delivery to this field, the former Journal of Interlibrary Loan & Information Supply has enhanced its title to the Journal of Interlibrary Loan, Document Delivery & Information Supply. The more inclusive and up-to-date title marks the clear direction of this field, making the journal more useful than ever to libraries of all types. The Journal of Interlibrary Loan, Document Delivery & Information Supply is under the editorship of Leslie Morris, Director of Libraries at Niagara University. In addition to practice and research-based articles on interlibrary loan, this exciting journal focuses on the broad spectrum of all library and information center functions that rely heavily on interlibrary loan, document delivery, and information supply, including: the use of interlibrary loan statistics for book and periodical acquisitions, weeding, and collection management in general; cutting-edge technologies and services used for interlibrary loan, such as telefacsimile, private document delivery services, and central data banks of any kind; fundamental copyright and permission issues concerning document delivery; quality assurance, efficiency studies, and practical program descriptions in the document delivery arena; special problems of international interlibrary loan, including problems of Third World country libraries; international currency and payment problems and innovative solutions; interlibrary loan of specialized library materials such as those involving music collections, media collections, art collections, foreign language collections, and legal materials; special problems of interlibrary loan and government documents; new opportunities in interlibrary loan and the enhancement of interlibrary loan as a specialization and career growth position in library organizations.
