LIBRARIES — INTERLIBRARY LOAN SERVICE

828. Hon SIMON O'BRIEN to the Leader of the House representing the Minister for Local Government:

I asked this question, I think, on our last sitting day last week and the minister was not available, so I ask it again.

(1) What is the total cost to run and administer the interlibrary loan service?

(2) How many items are moved per annum via the interlibrary loan service?

(3) What is the average cost per item of interlibrary loans?

Hon SUE ELLERY replied:

This answer was prepared for me to provide to the honourable member after question time today, but I have it here.

I thank the honourable member for some notice of the question.

(1) For 2016–17, the approximate cost to state and local governments was $12 million.

(2) For 2016–17, 154 883 items were supplied on interlibrary loan.

(3) The average cost is $72.
