The Strategic Inter-Network Collaboration Group (SINC) manages the reciprocal inter-library loan and document supply scheme (INC) for NHS libraries in England.

Its purpose:

  • Ensures NHS funded content is readily discoverable by NHS libraries to enable them to fulfil document supply across the NHS in England, efficiently and cost-effectively
  • Ensures NHS library document supply is of a consistently high quality and meets/exceeds expectations of customers
  • Ensures document supply considerations are included in HEE’s Knowledge for Healthcare Resource Discovery work.

See SINC’s terms of reference and minutes from previous meetings.

Contact [email protected] for any of the group's documents in an accessible format.

See Inter-lending and Document Supply (ILDS) for more information.
