I am not certain what to put in the cost field when entering information for inter-library loan?

Usually there is no cost associated with obtaining an article. If there are costs, they are charged by the lending library, not by Brenau.

Simply put the maximum amount you are willing to pay for an item.

There are many reasons why there might be a cost associated with an item. It could be for licensing and copyright clearance, it could be the lending library's procedure, it could mean the item is rare, it could indicate that the item is in storage or it would take more work to access the item, or it could be a simple copy charge.

If you have no idea what you would be willing to pay simply put a question mark or put that you would like for us to call you in that space. We always call and let you know if there is a cost.
