Abstract

This paper presents data from two statewide ILL studies conducted in Illinois in 1995/96 and 1999/00. The results from the two studies provide a longitudinal look at borrowing and lending in Illinois and with the second study confirm a journal resource-sharing model for the state. Further analysis of high-use titles was conducted to determine any impact the present availability of full-text electronic journals is having on ILL, and the potential impact full-text access to highly-requested titles could have on resource sharing in Illinois.
