Future of ILL Ideas (Walled Gardens?)

RRSI sponsored summer 2021 virtual conversations

Are we headed towards ILL Walled Gardens? As new systems become options, will they provide greater functionality within their system but not interoperate with others? What else impacts our ability to share? At the same time, what are the really cool things going on that helps us effectively share? RRSI sponsored two virtual conversations in summer of 2021 led by Lars Leon and Tom Bruno to kick off some conversations. See https://docs.google.com/document/d/1sBbH9BCE0f80y0cFLdwUWe70oVat7eP3BeKwDTfJ62Q/edit?usp=sharing for ideas from attendees.

Conversations have also occurred at:

a Greater Western Library Alliance Resource Sharing Collection Development Joint virtual meeting.

the NW Resource Sharing Conference.
