Interlibrary Loan: Internet Archive Joins IDS Project
Note: This is the second Internet Archive ILL-related announcement in three months. On April 27th announced a pilot project with the RapidILL.
From an IA Blog Post by Brewster Kahle:
The Internet Archive is pleased to announce it has joined the The Information Delivery Services (IDS) Project, a mutually supportive resource-sharing cooperative whose 120 members include public and private academic libraries from across the country.
As a member of the IDS Project, the Internet Archive expands its ability to support libraries and library patrons by providing access to two million monographs and three thousand periodicals in its physical collections available for non-returnable interlibrary loan (ILL) fulfillment.
If you want to learn more about the IDS Project and the Internet Archive, I will be speaking at the 17th Annual IDS Summer Conference on July 29th.
