ILRS Code Review

The Interlibrary Resource Sharing (ILRS) Code benefits Australian libraries and their users by providing greater predictability, consistency, and flexibility in obtaining materials.

The ALIA Interlending Advisory Committee will be reviewing the principles and guidelines in the Interlibrary Resource Sharing (ILRS) Code  during 2013 to ensure that it continues to be relevant, and keeps pace with changes in practice and technology.

The review process will commence with the Committee seeking comments regarding the current Code, as well as suggestions for amendments (this email).  Based on responses the Committee will issue a survey to seek feedback on recommended changes, as well as endorsement of the revised Code.  Final endorsement will then be sought from industry peak bodies. 

The Committee is seeking assistance in identifying areas not currently cover by the code, or requiring revision.  Please take a few minutes to respond to the following questions.

  1. Do any of the principles require amendment?
  2. If so, specify the suggested changes
  3. Do any of the definitions require amendment?
  4. If so, specify suggested changes.
  5. Any other comments or issues regarding the code

Please send your comments to by 15 February 2013.

Kind regards


Chair of the ALIA Interlending Advisory Committee
