Libraries suited to take part in in ILL SBN include the all ones interested in joining to the ILL system – even if they are not part of SBN – and willng to define their own role (requesting and/or supplying library), guarantee rapid responses and document supply and publish their own regulations or, at least, the types of documents for which circulation is allowed, the existing constraints and cost recovery mechanisms.
Individual libraries, local system centres and centralized loan services can join ILL SBN as well, either using the web interface, or interoperating via ISO ILL interconnection
In order to join ILL SBN, libraries have to:
- undersign the Agreement for interlibrary loan and document delivery in ILL SBN (also downloadable in pdf).
- send the information on the services provided by the libraries and any requested payments in the form (in Italian).
- ask ICCU for the password to access the management functions at the following address: firstname.lastname@example.org, indicating the name of the contact person appointed to the service and the email address that shall be used for all system communications.
In particular, institutions intending to join SBN
must specify, within the plan of activities attached to the agreement, which of their libraries would provide interlibray loan services and their willingness to provide documents at national and/or international level via the ILL SBN server (rules of adhesion to SBN).
As part of the training and teaching
activities organized by the Institute, and upon request from the interested institutes, courses can be organized in order to illustrate the characteristics and functions of the ILL SBN service.
