Abstract

This presentation will share how IUPUI University Library has taken a concrete step to advance delivery of content by collaborating with the Open Access Button to develop InstantILL -- a simple, community-owned tool for students and researchers to get free, fast, and legal access to articles -- and how others can easily implement it at their library. Resource sharing is a core service for the delivery of content needed to support scholarship and education, and resource sharing professionals can make significant inroads in enhancing discovery and delivery by partnering with Open projects to improve the library user’s experience when searching for known content. With a simple interface that users expect, InstantILL integrates searches of a library’s link resolver and open access content with a simple interlibrary loan request form, all with a single action by the end user. Attendees will learn why the library chose to pursue this project, how InstantILL works, and how to easily implement at their own library.
