Librarian Published in Interlibrary Loan Journal

Paul Doty, interim curator of Special Collections and University archivist, wrote an article that was published in the Journal of Interlibrary Loan, Document Delivery and Electronic Reserve.

The article, titled "First Sale Farther Out: Is There a Future for Interlibrary Loan," examines how ideas about changing the structure of libraries through climates for electronic publication and platforms for digital scholarship marginalize the importance of First Sale. The essay argues that consequences of being inattentive to First Sale’s fate have the potential to eat away the basis for effective dissemination of content, to a much greater extent than is generally realized or acknowledged.
