This paper reports on a research project that evaluates the impact of OhioLINK's resource sharing options upon traditional interlibrary loan services and organization. This impact is documented by a study of the interlibrary loan transactions processed by the Interlibrary Loan Department, Carlson Library, University of Toledo, before and after OhioLINK membership. Statistics were tracked over 9 years. Specific issues addressed are number of requests processed; total number of loans compared to total number of photocopy requests processed; total number of transactions between OhioLINK member libraries and non-OhioLINK member libraries; and the type of library generating and filing transactions. Analysis of the data revealed that the total number of requests processed has not decreased significantly. While decreases were noticed in tracking the requests processed, it is clear that OhioLINK's resource sharing options have not eliminated or lessened the workflow of the Interlibrary Loan Departments at the Carlson Library, University of Toledo. Contains 14 tables of data. (Author/DLS)
