interlibrary loan
InterLibrary Loan
  • Walk into any library and gain access to the world’s collections
  • Strong tradition, but traditionally expensive and slow
  • Over 95% of our libraries are now connected to the Net
  • Each library patron can leverage all other libraries
loaning materials
Loaning Materials
  • One approach: NetLibrary
  • New publisher contracts: 2500 books in SFPL
lending library format
Lending Library Format
  • Lending one copy over and over again
  • Bedrock of the Library model
  • Digital copy that is borrowed becomes unreadable after a time

Libraries passionately pursue the preservation and access to information.

We have the role, rights, and responsibility to fulfill this important mission in the digital era.

Lets ramp up our collecting, cataloging, and lending of digital materials.

We can upgrade every library to be world class.
