Actions Speak Louder than Words

We take interlibrary loan (ILL) requests very seriously.  If an ILL request for a book comes in that’s within set collection parameters, instead of borrowing that book for you, we buy it (very, very quickly) and add it to our collection.  In the same way, if we notice that 150 requests have come in for a journal, like Journal of Youth & Adolescence, we start a subscription.  So, beginning in January 2008, the library will license access to content from 1997 to present for Journal of Youth & Adolescence.   We are also starting a 2008 print subscription (it’s not yet available electronically) for Journal of College Counseling.   Judging from the many ILL requests both these titles have generated, these new subscriptions will be money well spent.
