Cardiff Univeristy libraries join IRU Cost Scheme http://combinedregions.com/news.asp?ID=79 Five ILL desks operated by Cardiff University have joined the Conarls IRU Cost Scheme: Thu, 30 May 2013 Conarls rate to rise in August 2013 http://combinedregions.com/news.asp?ID=78 The unit charge for borrowing items under the IRU Cost Scheme will rise to £6.00 from 1 August 2013. This charge, commonly known as the Conarls rate, has been held at £5.50 since 2008. It is increasing in order to cushion the effects of rising transport costs on net lenders.
