The Interlibrary Loan (ILL) protocol is a standard based on the OSI Reference Model that permits ILL messages to be exchanged between heterogeneous systems. By defining a standard for computer communications, the protocol permits the exchange of ILL messages between bibliographic institutions that use different computers, systems, and communication services. Recently approved as a Draft International Standard by the International Standards Organization, the protocol is expected to become an International Standard in 1991. Implementations based on this standard are currently being developed by institutions and software vendors in North America and Europe.
