I'm fairly new to document supply...I've noticed that libraries tend not to lend multimedia material (the forum for interlending list it as 'generally excluded from the inter library loans scheme'), and I wondered why that is? We have quite a collection of multimedia that we're occasionally asked for, and I think our default position should be to lend, but I worry that I'm missing something. (if it's in a short loan collection or fragile, that's obviously a different case). Our copyright officer can't think of a reason. Our one remaining docs person from the longstanding team isn't sure why. Is there a reason why we tend not to lend multimedia items to each other? I'd welcome some knowledge on the subject (and apologies if I'm the only ILL librarian who doesn't know why) .
