Summary

This study examined the interlibrary loan borrowing activity with OhioLINK libraries for Kent State University during the fiscal year 1992-1993. The study also examined the importance of automating interlibrary loan's statistical data. A total of 7,034 requests were made to participating OhioLINK libraries during this time period, and the 26 OhioLINK suppliers used during the fiscal year provided service to 51 departments. It is hoped that the descriptive analysis of these requests will enable the Interlibrary Loan department to provide better service and to provide useful information for collection development. Information acquired in the study may also prove useful in obtaining human and other resources to carry out the function of information supplier. Cross-tabulations were performed using the variables of university department, format of the material (book or photocopy), status of borrower (undergraduate, graduate student, faculty, or staff), and OhioLINK supplier. Results revealed several trends in the materials borrowed and the supplier used, as well as the department doing the requesting. Five data tables are included. (Contains 16 references.) (Author)
