Nebraska Resource Sharing Participation Program and Lender Compensation

To encourage and support the sharing of materials between Nebraska libraries, the Nebraska Library Commission provides quarterly compensation to Nebraska libraries lending materials to other Nebraska libraries through the OCLC Interlibrary Loan system. The amount per item varies by quarter depending on available funds.

To participate in the program, please complete the Nebraska Resource Sharing Participation Program Agreement Form.  

Payments are made in one of two ways for public libraries, private college libraries and special libraries:
  1. Direct payment: made electronically to an account for the library, or in the case of a public library to the city, if an ACH/Direct Deposit agreement has been made with the State Treasurer's office.

    Payments to Nebraska Entities: For those libraries whose payments are deposited into a city account rather than a library account, this document can be given to officials as a clarification of why funds must be expended for library purposes.

  2. Database account deposit: these funds are held by the Nebraska Library Commission and may be used by the library to pay for products and services invoiced by the Library Commission.  Products and services may include databases, OverDrive subscriptions, CatExpress subscriptions and training sessions.
To choose or change a method of payment, please complete the Lender Compensation Payment Instruction form.  

Payments for State funded libraries must be made as a direct payment by creating an Inter-Agency Billing Transaction (IBT) on NIS and sending the invoice to the Nebraska Library Commission for approval and posting.
