The results of a recently conducted study of interlibrary loan fee-based borrowing requests are presented in this article. The study examined 3,074 borrowing requests completed over a three-year period from January 2007 to December 2009. An analysis of the statistics was made to determine patron behavior in submitting requests and the types of materials being requested.
