Open Access in Interlibrary Loan: Sources and Strategies for Locating Free Materials Online (Conf. Presentation)

Here’s a useful slide deck from a recent conference presentation by Tina Baich, an Assistant Librarian at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI). Valuable to many librarians and researchers as a introduction or review to finding free scholarly/academic materials online.


Open Access in Interlibrary Loan: Sources and Strategies for Locating Free Materials Online (Conf. Presentation)

Presented at Wisconsin Library Association Annual Conference, La Crosse, WI, October 23-26, 2012


Even though open access materials are free for all, library users continue to request them through interlibrary loan. ILL staff are able to provide a service to users and a cost savings for their libraries by utilizing these materials. In this presentation, I will demonstrate open access resources that all libraries can use to fill interlibrary loan requests. I will also briefly discuss possible workflows for handling requests for open access materials.
