The Reference and User Services Association (RUSA) of the American Library Association (ALA) provides the Interlibrary Loan Code for the United States (linked below). The Explanatory Supplement to the code (also linked below) points out that the code "does not override individual or consortial agreements or regional or state codes which may be more liberal or more prescriptive. This national code is intended to provide guidelines for exchanges between libraries where no other agreement applies." The Interlibrary Loan code is reviewed and revised every seven years. The current version went through a 2 year revision process and the resulting changes were approved in January 2016.
ILL requests processed in requestIT CT fall under the provisions of this code.
