Abstract

Discusses how costs and risks involved with shipping returnable ILL materials across national boundaries act as major barriers to scholarship. Describes recent efforts by members of the Research Libraries Group’s SHARES programme to study and overcome these barriers. Suggests some actions that could result in the international sharing of valuable “research objects” becoming routine.
