Interlibrary loan and document delivery have become an area of great change in today’s library. New ILL requests now go to the online queue immediately for processing. Once authenticated, a user can input as many requests as they want at that time. Work has begun on a project called DRSS ± Distributed Resource Sharing System, which is being co‐developed by the CIC libraries and OCLC. Michigan State and University of Michigan are also beginning a project to test a new desktop document delivery system called Prospero.
