CDLC libraries agree to the free exchange of library materials, including, when necessary, gratis photocopies. To support this interlibrary loan activity, the Council maintains a Union Catalog (LiNX) of our member's holdings. CDLC also coordinates the Direct Access Program (DAP) and participates in OCLC WorldShare ILL, DOCLINE, and NYSILL.
The Reference and Users Service Association (RUSA) is a division of the American Library Association. RUSA has provided codes and guidelines for libraries and interlibrary loan.
For general questions about resource sharing at CDLC, contact Meghan Wakeman to schedule a virtual or in-person meeting to address your resource sharing needs.
If you have a question about specific request or need to speak to a specific library, you can find the proper contact information in the ILL Directory.
CDLC facilitates courier delivery across multiple systems and library types. The CDLC office is no longer a courier stop. Please consult the Delivery LibGuide to see whether or not a library utilizes a courier and how to send items properly.
