The paper seeks to provide an overview of the approach taken by the Danish library community towards the automation of ILL and end‐user loan requests.
The physical union catalogue DanBib is explained, along with Bibliotek.dk, which is the end‐user web interface to the public union catalogue. A detailed description is given of the development of an end‐user ILL system.
This facility is currently being tested and implementation is scheduled for the end of 2006.
The paper will be of interest to all librarians who wish to empower end users in searching for and obtaining material in which they are interested.
