Abstract:

The Committee on Institutional Cooperation (CIC) is an academic consortium comprising 12 major universities, primarily in the Midwest. In 1996, the CIC members initiated a project to link their library catalogs electronically. When fully implemented, the Virtual Electronic Library (VEL) will result in a virtual mega collection of 60 million books and 555,000 serials. The CIC also explored ways to permit its patrons, 35,000 faculty and 500,000 students, to search across the catalogs and to initiate interlibrary circulation among member institutions. In 1998, some libraries implemented a patron-request function to permit interlibrary circulation of physical materials without mediation by home library staff. The two-part study reported here examined how the mega library is presented to patrons, evaluated its effectiveness, and assessed patron reactions to interlibrary loans.
