  • Training involves your computer connected to the internet and a telephone near it.

Here is a brief tutorial.

  • Contact the ODL’s interlibrary loan division: David Hankey or InterLibrary Loan.  Training will take 30 minutes or less.
  • All libraries must agree to the following:

1. Books are borrowed from other libraries and institutions to meet your customers’ needs for information not owned by your library.  It is a requirement of the state aid rules that you offer this service to your customer.

2. The borrowing library is responsible for borrowed material from the time it leaves the supplying library until it has been returned to and received by the supplying library.

3. Borrowing libraries are responsible for return postage and lost material fees to the supplying library.

4. Books that have been lost or damaged shall be replaced or compensated for in accordance with the preference of the supplying library. Read entire code.

  • If you would like to speak with someone during our regular business hours, call David at 405-522-3473.
