A-V Interloan Program Guidelines

Materials - The following materials will be interloaned :

a) Non-fiction video tapes

b) Books on tape

Packaging - Both the owning library and the requesting library will package these materials in the most secure type of shipping containers. CAMLS will purchase some additional shipping containers and distribute to participating libraries. Please do NOT use padded mailers that are stuffed with shredded paper. CAMLS highly recommends sending these materials in either:

a) Bubble wrap mailers (Jiffy Bags) or
b) Cardboard cassette mailers from a company such as Uline

Interloan Procedures - Participating libraries will use their standard interloan procedures to both request and fill the interloans of these materials.

Waiting Period - After the arrival of these materials at the requesting library, the waiting period for the patron to pick up these materials will be the period of the requesting library.

Loan Period - The loan period for these materials will be that of the requesting library.

Renewals - The requesting library may NOT renew these materials for their patrons.

Overdue Fines - In the case of overdue materials, the requesting library will collect fines from the patron in the amount of its standard fine rate. The requesting library will retain all overdue fines collected from patrons for overdue materials.

Lost and Damaged Materials - In the event that any of these materials is either lost or damaged while in the possession of either the requesting library or that library's patron, the requesting library will reimburse the owning library the full cost of these materials, including, if applicable, a processing or replacement fee.

Restrictions - The decision to restrict the lending of requested materials shall be at the sole discretion of the owning library.

Reserves - The decision to place requested materials on reserve shall be at the sole discretion
of the owning library.

Insurance Procedures - The decision to insure any materials sent to another library will be the decision of the owning library. In the event that the owning library insures any of these materials, the requesting library will agree to insure these materials in the same amount.

Statistics - Participating libraries will be asked to keep a statistical record of their library's interloan transactions for these materials. The CLEVNET libraries will keep statistics for those interloan transactions to non-CLEVNET libraries only.
