Interlibrary Loan

Interlibrary loan is a document delivery service where libraries share material with each other in a consortium. More than 10,000 libraries worldwide use OCLC’s resource sharing network to lend and borrow resources. Together, they effectively create a shared, global library collection for the benefit of all their users. Worldshare Interlibrary loan quickly get users electronic resources and print materials between member libraries. You can obtain interlibrary loans materials through your public library if you are a member, or academic library if you are a student, faculty or staff of that college or university.

My question is: has Interlibrary loan benefited you / or not in any way and how?
