MALLCO Treatise Sharing Agreement
July 2018 – June 2020
Participating libraries agree to maintain current versions of the treatises assigned under this agreement (Appendix A) through June 2018.
Participants agree to provide the following ILL services among participants:
Lexis, Westlaw, Bloomberg, or other online resource will be used whenever possible before requesting material from a print treatise from a participating library.
Participating libraries agree to give ILL requests for treatises from other participating libraries high priority.
Ariel or a form of digital transmission is the preferred method of providing treatise content that is not available online.
If Ariel or a form of digital transmission is not possible, photocopying of up to 50 pages (requests for more pages will be honored if possible and at participant discretion) will be provided.
Request to have books shipped should be a last resort only and at the cost of the borrowing library. The host library may refuse to ship materials that are in use by the home institution for a class or for faculty/student research.
Participants agree to provide basic reference service during regular business hours limited to quick look-ups and quick cite checks at the discretion of the host library.
Participating libraries agree to keep track of the reference and ILL requests they fill and provide these statistics to the MALLCO executive director once a year.
