Interlibrary Loan Service Resumes
The Huntsville Public Library advised yesterday that they and other Ontario libraries have received notification that the suspension of Interlibrary Loan services has been lifted.
However, the delivery service previously managed by the Southern Ontario Library Service (SOLS) is no longer being provided. Although the SOLS provincial operating grant has still been reduced by $1.6 M, they will provide partial reimbursement to libraries for delivery costs through Canada Post.
This means Libraries can continue Interlibrary Loan service, but the Library will pay a portion of the shipping costs.
As a result, the library says they will need some time to plan for these budget and operational changes.
