SCRLC Resource Sharing Delivery Subsidy Grant
SCRLC may have funding available to reimburse individual libraries and library systems for interlibrary loan items lent to other SCRLC member organizations. Funding is based on a formula that takes into account the total funds available, how much the library/library system lends to other members, and the number of applications received. All member libraries and library systems are eligible to apply for this grant. To be considered, a member must complete the application form and have submitted their annual interlibrary loan statistics.
Funding is dependent on SCRLC’s operating budget; therefore, availability may vary from year to year. For more information on the Resource Sharing Subsidy Policy, click here.

The Information Delivery Services (IDS) Project, based in New York, is a mutually supportive resource-sharing cooperative whose 110 members include public and private academic libraries from across the country, the New York Public Library, and the New York State Library (view a list of current members). The Project is based on a strong sense of community among its members and a unified collection perspective. The major goal of the Project is to continually implement and objectively evaluate innovative resource-sharing strategies, policies and procedures that will optimize mutual access to the information resources of all IDS Project libraries. Member libraries sign annual contracts committing to a common set of performance standards. There is an annual membership fee of $1,500.
