Library Renovation & Interlibrary Loan
Libraries need to be places suited towards “scholarship, engagement, spirituality, and other positive emotions, as well as subjects’ desire to use those spaces more than they currently use their existing library” (Jackson, 2011).
Interlibrary Loan's Role
Crucial for maintaining patron satisfaction and SACS requirements
Preparation Steps
Staffing and shipping materials
How stats were taken
Role in marketing and communication
Effect of renovation on ILL volume
The institution, through ownership or formal arrangements
or agreements, provides and supports student and faculty
access and user privileges to adequate library collections
and services and to other learning/information resources
consistent with the degrees offered. Collections, resources, and services are sufficient to support all its educational, research, and public service programs.

Stats gathered will help in future weeding projects
Stats may influence departmental budget allocations
In general, the collection and presentation of statistics showed the Collection Development Department how useful ILL statistics can be
I'm now on the Collection Development Committee (Yay!)
Early June 2014 another committee was formed call the Communications Team. It consisted of the same people from the Improvement Project Team.
