Çimen, Ertuğrul and Tuğlu, Ayhan and Manyas, Mehmet and Çelikbaş, Sema and Çelikbaş, Zeki (2009) New approaches for interlibrary loan operations in Turkey; KITS (Interlibrary Loan Tracking System). In: World Library and Information Congress: 75th IFLA General Conference and Assembly, Milan, Italy
In this study, we would like to introduce KITS (Interlibrary Loan Tracking System), which is an on-line system for resource sharing for the Turkish institutions. The academics of Turkish institutions and research centres from any region of Turkey can access the full-text and bibliographic scholarly e-resources on many different subjects through ANKOS (Anatolian University Libraries Consortium) since 2000 when ANKOS was established. Besides consortium activities there are many working and research groups under the ANKOS organisation. These working and research groups try to build up different kinds of professional librarianship activities. “National Resource Sharing Guideline” has been written by one of these groups named Collaboration Research Group. KITS has also been produced by the same group. KITS is an application that centralises all ILL operations and processes in different formats. The participating institutions will manage all resource sharing activities on-line. KITS is a unique and first of its kind application for the on-line resource sharing operations in Turkey, we believe that all the institutions in the higher education system will participate to the KITS project because KITS is very user friendly and the institutions would like to get their own ILL statistics easily. KITS is available at http://www.ankos.gen.tr/KITS/index.php .
