Each year, Libraries and Information East Midlands' member organisations that participate in inter-library lending collect statistics relating to their inter-library loans and submit these to the Secretariat for collation.
A review of the information required to support interlending activity within the Region and methods of collecting / providing this information to LIEM is currently taking place (September 2012)
Interlending statistics are published together with the Annual Report of the Libraries and Information East Midlands and are also used to help build up the picture of inter-lending activity across the whole of the United Kingdom.
In 2011-12, Libraries and Information East Midlands' members conducted over 69,000 interlending transactions. A full statistical report showing the recorded interlending transactions of member organisations is available below.
Member organisations of LIEM that submit their interlending statistics can use these proformae for their returns to us, either electronically or by post:
