Reciprocal contracts A reciprocal contract is a binding written contract between two libraries to provide ILL services for free. Reciprocal contracts Who should we offer the contract to?

ALL AND ANY CHARGING LIBRARIES THAT CAN LEND! Send them anyway you can think of: By email By fax By mail To listserves Reciprocal contracts Statistics on how much we have borrowed

versus how much we have lent do not predict future use if they are now free. Example: CLO is a $18 lender, we charged $15 Pre-contract 2008: ISU lent 6 items at $15 , borrowed 1 at $18 Post-contract 2010: ISU lent 3 items, borrowed 16 at no charge

Reciprocal contracts Create a contract that has the following: Library information What will be free Contract expiration Signatures and Dates Reciprocal contracts See example

Free groups LVIS (Libraries Very Interested in Sharing) brary/who_we_are/OCLC/lvis.html SO6 GAC/UL (SIXX; Solinet free articles) SL#N (Solinet free loans) Global Sharing Group (International free sharing)
