Abstract

To obtain a national picture of interlibrary lending in the UK, a survey of all libraries was carried out in February 1977, with an approximate 75 response. A third of all requests was for monographs, 56 for serials. Half the demand came from academic libraries, 16 from public libraries, and a third from other libraries. The British Library was used successfully for 73 of all requests, the regional systems for 1112 and direct application for 1213 3 were unsatisfied the regional systems accounted for half of all successful public library requests. The British Library itself supplied 70 of requested items, public libraries 10, academic libraries 9 and other libraries 8. Satisfaction rates for different channels ranged from 94 British Library to 77 regional bureaux. Median times from requesting to receipt varied between 6 days British Library and 14 days regional bureaux.
