As Ulrich's Global Serials Directory notes, "Interlibrary loan and document delivery is arguably the area of library service experiencing the most growth in the last several years. As libraries increasingly are unable to collect everything needed by their own users, the provision of materials through interlending or commercial document delivery has seen a phenomenal increase."[16. <em>Journal of Interlibrary Loan, Document Supply &amp; Electronic Reserve, </em>Ulrichsweb Global Serials Directory, accessed January 26, 2018,<em>  </em><a href="http://ulrichsweb.serialssolutions.com.libaccess.sjlibrary.org/title/176666" target="_blank" rel="noopener">http://ulrichsweb.serialssolutions.com.libaccess.sjlibrary.org/title/176666</a>.] Consequently, LIS authors will find a wide audience when publishing with this journal, especially since it's indexed in a number of prominent databases, including FRANCIS, LISA, ProQuest 5000, and many others.[17. <em>Journal of Interlibrary Loan, Document Supply &amp; Electronic Reserve, </em>Ulrichsweb Global Serials Directory, accessed January 26, 2018,<em>  </em><a href="http://ulrichsweb.serialssolutions.com.libaccess.sjlibrary.org/title/176666" target="_blank" rel="noopener">http://ulrichsweb.serialssolutions.com.libaccess.sjlibrary.org/title/176666</a>.] &nbsp; <h2>Audience analysis</h2> <hr /> <h4>About the publication's readers</h4> <strong>Publication circulation:</strong> Circulation numbers are not available. <strong>Audience location:</strong> The primary audience for this publication is the United States, and--to a slightly lesser degree--other English-speaking countries such as Great Britain, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa. Most of the articles are geared towards library applications in North America. English language speakers comprise the majority of the audience.[18. <em>Journal of Interlibrary Loan, Document Supply &amp; Electronic Reserve, </em>Ulrichsweb Global Serials Directory, accessed January 26, 2018,<em>  </em><a href="http://ulrichsweb.serialssolutions.com.libaccess.sjlibrary.org/title/176666" target="_blank" rel="noopener">http://ulrichsweb.serialssolutions.com.libaccess.sjlibrary.org/title/176666</a>.] Many of the articles are predicated on the principles espoused by the ALA Interlibrary Code for the United States, which would mean the laws and standard practices of North American libraries are often given space in the journal.[19. "Aims and Scope," Taylor and Francis Group, accessed January 26, 2018, <a href="http://www.tandfonline.com/action/journalInformation?show=aimsScope&amp;journalCode=wild20#.U78FqLGdROg" target="_blank" rel="noopener">http://www.tandfonline.com/action/journalInformation?show=aimsScope&amp;journalCode=wild20#.U78FqLGdROg</a>.] However, there is evidence that the audience is becoming more international, as evidenced by the inclusion of case studies from countries outside of North America.[20. "Publication History," Taylor and Francis Group, accessed January 26, 2018, <a href="http://www.tandfonline.com/loi/wild20#.U78INrGdROg" target="_blank" rel="noopener">http://www.tandfonline.com/loi/wild20#.U78INrGdROg</a>.] <strong>Reader characteristics:</strong> Most readers have a vested interest in the success of an interlibrary loan office. Often, readers are veteran staff members, but just as often, readers may be learning the tricks of the trade, as interlibrary loan can be very specialized. Additionally, many readers are librarians or administrators who are responsible for making the overarching decisions in an interlibrary loan office. The vast majority of readers are from the interlibrary loan or access services worlds. Paraprofessional staff comprise a large portion of the readership, as well as interlibrary loan department supervisors (mostly librarians). Finally, administrators have a vested interest in the scholarship of this subject, as they are most often the decision makers.[21. "Aims and Scope," Taylor and Francis Group, accessed January 26, 2018, <a href="http://www.tandfonline.com/action/journalInformation?show=aimsScope&amp;journalCode=wild20#.U78FqLGdROg" target="_blank" rel="noopener">http://www.tandfonline.com/action/journalInformation?show=aimsScope&amp;journalCode=wild20#.U78FqLGdROg</a>.] Two issues frequently permeate this journal: the worth of interlibrary loan services and the issue of position in the interlibrary loan office. Interlibrary loan is often unknown or forgotten in many libraries, despite its enormous value to communities.  As for position, interlibrary loan offices must decide whether paraprofessionals or librarians should be in charge. There is a strong feeling that the position of ILL librarian is valuable and useful.[22. "Publication History," Taylor and Francis Group, accessed January 26, 2018, <a href="http://www.tandfonline.com/loi/wild20#.U78INrGdROg" target="_blank" rel="noopener">http://www.tandfonline.com/loi/wild20#.U78INrGdROg</a>.] <strong>Knowledge of LIS subject matter:</strong> Readers of this publication are usually very knowledgeable about libraries, especially the specialized field of interlibrary loans. Civilians with little exposure to libraries, as well as staff outside of access service departments are, for the most part, outside this journal's intended audience. Some of the articles meticulously detail the day-to-day work in interlibrary loan offices, even when the subject mater is more theoretical.[23. "Aims and Scope," Taylor and Francis Group, accessed January 26, 2018, <a href="http://www.tandfonline.com/action/journalInformation?show=aimsScope&amp;journalCode=wild20#.U78FqLGdROg" target="_blank" rel="noopener">http://www.tandfonline.com/action/journalInformation?show=aimsScope&amp;journalCode=wild20#.U78FqLGdROg</a>.]For example, in a past article, the issue of free document delivery is discussed. On the one hand, the article discussed the philosophical issues behind charging or not charging patrons, but on the other hand, the article goes into significant detail about the reality of providing articles for a large patron base.[24. "Publication History," Taylor and Francis Group, accessed January 26, 2018, <a href="http://www.tandfonline.com/loi/wild20#.U78INrGdROg" target="_blank" rel="noopener">http://www.tandfonline.com/loi/wild20#.U78INrGdROg</a>.] <h4>Conclusion: Analysis of reader characteristics and their potential impact on authors</h4> Because interlibrary loan and electronic reserves are very specialized fields within the library world, thorough knowledge of the subject is key. Additionally, the interlibrary loan community is very close-knit and collaborative by design. Potential authors need to be very aware of this community, and if they are not already part of it, become part of it. <strong>Last updated:</strong> January 26, 2018 <hr /> <h4>References</h4>
