REFSHARE-L -- Reference and Interlibrary Loan


English (USA)

REFSHARE-L is open to public library staff across the state actively providing reference, information and interlibrary loan services to patrons as well as librarians making policy and procedural decisions affecting those services. The list will be a way for public library reference staff to share problems and solutions, to facilitate answering difficult questions, share ideas concerning use of statewide resources such as Galileo and for finding out about new or changing concepts or tools in the field. For ILL staff, this list is a way to get and give help and hints on searching WorldCat and on finding the right item as well as disseminating other information that supports staff providing resource sharing.
