Publication date: 1 May 1991


Examines the use of Interlibrary loan databases and online logging systems in determining which titles are collected. Discusses the objective of collecting ILL data, alternative data sources, the system used at UTK, and the challenges to data collection. Concludes that formal evaluation of the system will take place after the service has in place for a year, while ILL data supply will become increasingly important for collection development.
