Save staff time and increase your ILL fill rate with the OCLC Policies Directory

From OCLC WorldShare Interlibrary Loan,  you have one-click access to the OCLC Policies Directory, where you can review the lending and copying policies of other libraries participating in WorldShare Interlibrary Loan, plus their billing, system and contact information. You can use this information to choose your potential lenders based on policies that meet your needs, and publish your own policies in the Directory to reduce the number of unfilled requests you receive.
