When you need that One and Only Book

Cassandra Swartzwelder

This article is about a patron who is looking for a particular book that is only 
available in a library in Estonia. This is where Interlibrary Loan comes in.
 Interlibrary loan staff "facilitate the exchange of books, articles, and journals
 among libraries" (Turnage, 2017). Not one library has everything in it's collection.
 The majority of people think that there will no longer be a need to lend or
 borrow physical items. This is not the case, there are more and more 
requests for physical items now.
