Abstract

Interlibrary Loan borrowing rates in academic libraries are influenced
by an array of factors. This article explores the relationship between
interlibrary loan borrowing activity and research activity at 42 Canadian
academic institutions. A significant positive correlation was found
between interlibrary loan borrowing activity and measures of research
activity. The degree of correlation observed depended on the category of
institution, with undergraduate and comprehensive universities showing
the largest correlations. This is the first study to quantify the relationship
between interlibrary loan and research activity, and the findings suggest
that interlibrary loan plays a role in supporting academic research at
Canadian universities.
