article description
Technology has changed over time for interlibrary loan; digital equipment now gives opportunities to deliver requests without damaging rare or fragile materials. Examples of the equipment are cameras, flat bed scanners, form feed scanners, iPhones, iPads, handheld scanning wands, microreel scanners, and microfiche scanners.
