Ex Libris Looks at 'How Library Resource Sharing Is Fulfilling Its Promise' via Its Rapido Solution

Beth Dempsey writes the following for Ex Libris:

Nothing speaks more to the uniquely collaborative nature of libraries than resource sharing. The idea of banding together to share collections has always held the promise of strengthening individual libraries and empowering them with larger collections. However, reality hasn’t always lived up to promise. Frustrations abound with traditional interlibrary loan (ILL) management systems and document delivery services (DDS). Librarians lament complicated set-ups, incompatibility with other library systems, and even manual workflows are rife with dead-ends and wasted steps. In a world where budget dollars and staff time are at a premium, traditional ILL systems are simply too expensive. …

Rapido, from Ex Libris, part of Clarivate, is among a new generation of resource sharing solutions that streamlines both ILL and DDS by automating processes and freeing librarians from tedious manual steps.
