Interlibrary loan is a successful, popular service that works largely because of partnerships between libraries, but relationships within libraries are just as important for building a successful resource sharing operation.  Library staff need to work across departments to ensure that their users can access the materials they need for their research, and lending generously on interlibrary loan can be a key step in achieving that goal.

This video series will highlight three successful collaborations at the University of Delaware Library for programs to purchase books on demand, lend film and video materials to other libraries, and digitize non-circulating special collections items on demand.  These partnerships have enriched relationships between library departments and have created positive experiences for users both within and outside of the University of Delaware community.  This series will highlight best practices and strategies for beginning collaborative projects outside of interlibrary loan.
