Investigating Interlending: a scoping study of resource discovery, sharing and cooperation    This report presents work commissioned by The Combined Regions (TCR) and undertaken by a team from CPLIS (the Centre for the Public Library and Information in Society) in the Information School at the University of Sheffield, to investigate the factors influencing interlending and resource sharing in public libraries, and identify potential future models of cooperation.

The research was motivated by a need to better understand the apparent decline in rates of interlending indicated by falling rates of both searching and lending through the UnityUK system.
