|Interlibrary Loan Policies|
The Nevada State Library and Archives supports the Information Nevada structure by providing a second level of service as outlined by the Information Nevada agreement. The Nevada State Library and Archives provides interlibrary loan service to its identified customers at the level provided for the budgetary and staffing resources.
The Nevada State Library (NSL) borrows items through the national OCLC systems exclusively for Nevada governments and their employees. Public libraries in the area provide ILL borrowing services to the public.
The NSL lends Nevada related items through the OCLC system. Nevada newspaper microfilm lending is limited to the collection on hand of duplicate copies.
The NSL does not borrow or lend materials, in any format, for the study of family pedigrees or lineages, except as a function of Nevada governments.
As a member of the Information Nevada interlibrary loan system, the NSL submits OCLC requests for Nevada public libraries. This service is limited to 5 requests per public library district, per month. Each library district is responsible for establishing its own borrowing policy, while adhering to this limitation.
NSL is a member of the Cooperative Libraries Automated Network (CLAN) statewide system and participates fully in the ILL functions within the State of Nevada.
This policy supersedes any existing ILL policies and is in effect as of April 1, 2009.
