Global ILL Framework (GIF) Project
New ILL initiative (December 23, 2008)
The University Libraries is pleased to announce our acceptance into the Global ILL Framework (GIF) Project. The GIF project is a reciprocal agreement between North American and Japanese academic libraries and research institutes to provide North American researchers with access to materials not available through normal ILL channels such as OCLC. We will now have access to the collections of over 150 Japanese libraries greatly increasing our ability to fulfill the needs of our patrons.
In order to participate certain protocols must be followed, these protocols will be explained in an instruction guide that will be released early January 2009.
We are honored to be the only academic library in the state of Colorado to participate in this project. This has been a cooperative initiative between Interlibrary Loan and Collection Development/Asian Studies bibliographer, Xiang Li. For more information please contact Xiang Li at email@example.com or Regina Carlyon at firstname.lastname@example.org.
