Abstract

Discusses why interlibrary loan (ILL) has not been the subject of substantial automation and briefly discusses the current state of ILL automation in the UK. Suggests that the Library and Information Co‐operation Council (LINC) is uniquely placed to monitor developments. Recommends further action for LINC including its role in collection and dissemination of information and influencing developments in ILL automation.
