Interlibrary loan specialists today, by working with their local library colleagues in other functions and departments, are doing a variety of things to help each other and help library users to access information. We will present chapters from this newly published book and identify collaborative ideas that we can share with our local colleagues and implement at our libraries. Join us to discuss how ILL staff can work with circulation, reference, acquisitions, collection development, stacks maintenance, preservation, systems and more. We will also discuss the process of writing chapters for and editing a book. And, we will consider why library information sharing is so important today, and what it has meant in our past and means to our future: "As for ILL [interlibrary loan] work today, it represents a microcosm of the kind of world many people want to live in; one where we share as much as we can, support each other, and empower everyone to learn and grow; one in which people appreciate and experience the value of community and sharing and dreaming. It seems that people's lives are most successful, and we are at our best, when we feel connected to more people and when we can find meaning in what we are doing. No matter how libraries, ILL, and library information sharing evolve, they are still all about connecting people and information, libraries around the world, and library staff within and among these libraries."
