OhioLINK joint research on patron-driven resource sharing : [an abstract] by Chandra Prabha( )
1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Among statewide consortia, OhioLink is seen as a clear leader in the successful implementation of a patron-driven interlibrary borrowing system. This capability, often implemented as an enhancement to the on-line catalog system, enables patrons to borrow directly from consortium members other than their home library. The availability of this feature has increased the number of books exchanged among libraries to a level not imagined before. Most research on resource sharing has focused on factors such as traffic volume, costs, and efficiency. There is a lack of research data on the characteristics of books that patrons borrow directly from non-home member libraries, even though such data could help address important aspects of resource sharing, especially pertaining to content. A current research project attempts to fill this gap by examining 40,000 sample interlibrary book-borrowing requests initiated by patrons via OhioLink. Book characteristics such as age (publication date), subject (LC and DDC classes), distribution among membership (holdings count), and availability at the home library are used to create a patron-needs profile. This information will contribute to our knowledge of patron borrowing behavior in consortial settings, and may be useful to the future implementation of patron-driven interlibrary borrowing systems

Characteristics of publications sought through OCLC PRISM interlibrary loan by Chandra Prabha( )
1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
In spite of the current preoccupation with problems of ILL/DDS (interlibrary loan/document delivery service), little national level data exists on the characteristics of materials users seek through ILL/DDS. The library profession speculates and argues about the role of the library in the future of ILL/DDS in the absence of data on what users now request through ILL/DDS. This study describes publications requested through OCLC PRISM Interlibrary Loan. The survey findings are based on over 100,000 requests: 56% were for monographs; 43% were for serials. More than 40% of monograph requests were for materials published 10 years ago or earlier. Sixty percent (60%) of the monographs requested were held by 11 to 300 libraries. ILL requests were sorted by LC classification. The fields of science, medicine, and social science appear to draw more from serial literature than do other subject fields. In other subject fields, serials and monographs seem to be, more or less, in equal demand
