I hope it has been a good year for you. I am busy sorting out the last few requests of the year, and clearing up those last minute queries that pop up every year. The best part of getting to do the final FIL blog before Christmas is the opportunity to thank all my ILL colleagues for all the books and journal articles you have sent this year. Working in ILL most of us have to open parcels every working day so opening our presents Christmas morning should be easy.
I hope you have a relaxing Christmas break and if this year is anything to go by, come back brimming with ideas and enthusiasm for ILL. See you at Interlend 2016!
In the spirit of Christmas I thought I would finish by publishing my ILL letter to Father Christmas before I send it up the library chimney.
Dear Father Christmas,
I have done my very best in my ILL work this year so please could you send me.
A new post sack for all the ILL returns in January.
An ILL system that prints out ILL slips when I receive ILLs.
P.S. Thank you for the ILL trolley you sent me last year. It is great.
