MetadataShow full item record
Advances in technology and cooperative structures have had a dramatic effect on the speed of ILL fulfillment for articles, but because of physical limitations, ILL fill speed for monographs has lagged. Having successfully improved ILL fill speed for journal articles by introducing ILLiad and RapidILL, The College of New Jersey Library investigated the possibility of expediting ILL fill for monographs by taking advantage of the speed afforded by ebook fulfillment and the attractive pricing of short-term leases of ebooks. This necessitated an assessment of the scale of ebook equivalents and the creation of new internal workflows in close consultation with our ebook vendor.
