  • Philosophy and Procedures

    Interlibrary Loan (ILL)

    Interlibrary loan allows patron access to a more extensive collection of materials than would be available in one campus library. Within the district, librarians participate in ILL by requesting and loaning library materials. Greater access to resources promotes equity but also adds responsibilities for both lending and borrowing libraries.

    Library materials may be requested and borrowed through the ILL process by all NEISD students, teachers, and parents. The lending librarian has the assurance that if material loss or damage occurs, the borrowing librarian will be responsible for either collecting funds or providing replacements using campus library funds.

    Procedures to be followed by the Borrowing Library:

    • Determine whether or not requested material is in "high demand", such as holiday, award or curricular item
    • Follow Destiny procedures to request the item
    • Monitor due dates of borrowed material so that they are returned in a timely manner
    • Collect funds for lost or damaged material
    • Make arrangements with lending librarian to provide replacement material if charges are not collected
    • Procedures to be followed by the Lending Library:
    • Check to ensure that requested material is not in "high demand" (curricular item needed within the next few weeks)
    • Follow Destiny procedures to check out item to borrowing library
    • Send overdue notices to borrowing library if required
    • Collect charges for lost or damaged item from the borrowing library
