IUB takes the initiative to introduce interlibrary loan
To introduce the Interlibrary Loan Policy (ILL), IUB Library organized a discussion meeting on August 25, 2019 at its own campus in Bashundhara R/A, Dhaka. Prof. Milan Pagon, Vice Chancellor (Acting), IUB chaired the session while Mr. M Hossam Haider Chowdhury, Librarian moderated the event.
The purpose of Interlibrary Loan Policy is to obtain and sharing the materials and resources for research and academic purposes that are not available in concerned libraries. Therefore, this Policy will help making all essential resources available to the eligible users of the libraries who join the ILL program and sign the agreement.
This has been a pioneering initiative of IUB Library that was greatly appreciated by all participants.
Good numbers of professionals from different universities and organizations namely American International University, BRAC University, Daffodil International University, East West University, IUBAT, BGMEA University of Fashion and Technology, United International University, Uttara University; ICDDR,B and National Health Library & Documentation Centre participated in the meeting and shared valuable thoughts.
After detail discussions, a seven-member committee was formed to finalize the Policy and prepare a draft copy of the Agreement.
