The International ILL Toolkit is a freely available, crowd-sourced effort, initiated by the OCLC SHARES resource sharing consortium, designed to promote and enable greater ease of global sharing among libraries. 

Learn about the origins of the Toolkit and how it grew into an elaborate, multifaceted set of resources with contributions from libraries around the world. 

Explore the components of the International ILL Toolkit:  

  • An ever-growing listing of lenders from around the world with contact, delivery, and payment information  
  • Tips and tricks for international ILL by country/region 
  • Translated ILL request templates which can be copied for local use, prepared in collaboration with library professionals fluent in that language

Finally, get a peek at future plans for the International ILL Toolkit and, perhaps most importantly, participate in the dialogue on ways to continue improving this valuable, evolving resource. 

This webinar is co-sponsored by the OCLC Research Library Partnership and ALA RUSA STARS (Sharing and Transforming Access to Resources Section) International ILL Committee. 

This webinar will be of interest to anyone interested in the international sharing of library research materials via interlibrary loan.
