Interlibrary Van Service News

On this page are some links to online articles about the 2011-12 legislative effort to decrease interlibrary loan van delivery service.

In Warner, mailing the 1700 items we borrowed or loaned in 2010 would have cost us about $5,100 in postage at about $3 per item. Van service is paid for with federal funds and is 6-7 times more cost-effective per item (.44 per item).

224:215 Department of Cultural Resources, Federal Funding. It is the intent of the general court that the department of cultural resources review the federal program guidelines for which it receives federal dollars to support library programs and seek to amend its 5-year plan to use funding that had been designated to support 3 of the interlibrary vans for other purposes. Furthermore, the review shall include a determination of programs or services the department could offer using federal library program funds. The department shall file a report of its findings with the house finance committee on or before November 30, 2011
