The Quest for Documents: Catalogues, Interlibrary Loan and Document Delivery in Austria – using the example of the Danube University Krems
If you want to work efficiently and economically in research and teaching there is a condition precedent: the admission to expert literature. To guarantee appropriate literature, interlibrary loan and document delivery is essential. Via interlibrary loan different media can be ordered at national and international libraries. As the first library in Austria we use the Aleph Sharing system for interlibrary loan. This system develops the base for computer based working in libraries and enables cooperation between libraries in Austria. For document delivery we collaborate with Subito. Subito is a document delivery service of research libraries in Germany, Austria and Switzerland from where we order most of the articles. Our users have the possibility to order their documents by a web form on our homepage. The huge number of orders shows us how important, for research and teaching, such a librarian service is.
