The Internet Archive Launches Interlibrary Loan (ILL) Pilot Program with RapidILL

From an Internet Archive Blog Post by Brewster Kahle:

Internet Archive is now making two million monographs and three thousand periodicals in its physical collections available for non-returnable fulfillment through a pilot program with RapidILL, a prominent ILL coordination service. To date, more than seventy libraries have added the Internet Archive to their reciprocal lending list, and Internet Archive staff are responding to, on average, twenty ILL requests a day. If your library would like to join our pilot in Rapid, please reach out to Mike Richins and request that Internet Archive be added to your library’s reciprocal lending list.
