Conveying the value of a free interlibrary loan service to library administration can be difficult. The Sherratt Library is employing a new method of cost-benefit data selection for ILL. Showing measurable decreases in collection development costs while maximizing user access lends greater administrative value to the service. This presentation outlines our process of data selection and application of a monetary value to ILL requests as well as tips for advocating the service to administrators.
