Lee Library interlibrary loans reach half million mark

When BYU faculty members don’t have the materials they need, they turn to the Harold B. Lee Lbrary’s interlibrary loan service for help. Recently, interlibrary loan reached a major milestone by filling its 500,000th book request.

“The Harold B. Lee Library’s interlibrary loan service has been invaluable to my research,” said Kristian Heal, director of the center of preservation for religious texts of the Neal A. Maxwell Institute of Religious Studies. “The Lee Library has surprisingly good holdings in my field, but I have almost weekly needs for items not in our own collection.”

“The library’s loan service has been consistently helpful and effective in finding items that are often only available in a small handful of libraries in the United States. Frequently the staff has gone the extra mile to find an item, clarifying details or finding alternatives,” said Heal.

Mary Jane Woodger, a professor of Church history and doctrine, agrees that interlibrary loan is an invaluable resource.

“I cannot say enough good about the service,” said Wooger. “I would not be as successful as a professor without this great service. The time it has saved me in hunting down books, articles, and other materials has been so helpful.  Interlibrary loan has saved me thousands of hours.”

For more information on this service, contact Caitlin Hafen, ILL borrowing supervisor, 801-422-8663, caitlin_hafen@byu.edu or visit illiad.lib.byu.edu/illiad/ill.html.
