The end of 2022 is right around the corner and our campaign to promote interlibrary loan services is almost over. We have blogged about “Borrowing from Other Libraries” using ILLiad and Prospector  to borrow everything from books and book chapters to articles and DVD’s.  Strauss library borrowed from libraries in Colorado, Wyoming and all over the United States for our students and faculty. We have even received articles from as far away as Australia and Germany. And now that the year is closing, we thought we would throw out just how many of these items you had us find for you from Jan 1- Nov. 1, 2022. Here are just a few of the numbers. I know how medical people love stats!!!

From Jan 1, 2022 – November 1, 2022
