Abstract: This study examines interlibrary lending in Britain and through comparison it provides suggestions for more effective and efficient interlibrary lending in Kenya. Detailed information on the infrastructure of the British interlibrary lending system is provided. A questionnaire survey of the public, academic and special libraries gave information on use of BLDSC, regional library bureaux and cooperative schemes, the volume of interlibrary lending transactions, extent of use of catalogues and guides, online services and transport schemes in lending. Also the common problems of interlending were interlibrary identified. Recommendations are made against a background of the infrastructure of Kenyan libraries and relevant legislation.
