In this presentation

In This Presentation…

  • Introducing ILLiad, the new ILL software at the University of Delaware Library

  • Overview of ILLiad lending, or, “What happens when my library sends an ILL request to UD?”

  • Using the new web interface to send your library’s requests to the University of Delaware Library Interlibrary Loan Office

  • What’s next for ILL at the University of Delaware?


What is the new ill software at the university of delaware

What is the new ILL software at the University of Delaware?

  • OCLC ILLiad software, implemented in June 2008

    • http://www.atlas-sys.com/products/illiad/

    • http://www.oclc.org/illiad/


What happens now when a library sends an email or faxed ill request to the university of delaware

What happens now when a library sends an email or faxed ILL request to the University of Delaware?

  • ILL Office receives a request by fax or email

  • Staff manually input the request information into ILLiad

  • Staff manually fax or email the borrowing library to communicate about the request


What s new

What’s New?

  • Borrowing libraries enter requests into an online form that feeds directly into ILLiad for ILL staff at the University of Delaware to review.

  • Requests are processed as soon as they are received in the ILL Office without ILL staff having to check for new email requests or re-key any request information.

  • Communication is automated through built-in email templates – if your library’s request is cancelled, you’ll know about it immediately.

Additional features

Additional Features

  • Request Tracking – libraries can see the status of any request in real time.

  • Request History – libraries can access a history of past requests.


How does this system work for borrowing libraries

How does this system work for borrowing libraries?

  • One-time online registration to provide contact and shipping information:

    http://www.lib.udel.edu/forms/ill-lib.php

  • After registering, libraries receive a unique username and password for accessing the University of Delaware ILL system’s lending webpages.

  • Staff at borrowing libraries log on to the ILL lending webpages and start requesting!

    http://udel.illiad.oclc.org/illiad/lending/lendinglogon.html


Requesting a username and password

Requesting a Username and Password

  • One logon per library – not per staff member (if your library has more than one person working on ILL).

  • Please provide your OCLC or NUC symbol if you have one, even if it is not used for ILL. These symbols are the best unique identifiers for borrowing libraries.

  • An email address is required for communication through ILLiad. Avoid a staff person’s email address if a departmental ILL address is available.


After registration

After Registration

  • University of Delaware ILL staff will process each library’s registration in ILLiad. This may take several hours; it is not an automated process.

  • A confirmation email will be sent to the address used during registration. It will contain a username and temporary password for logging in.

  • Passwords are case sensitive. A temporary password will be ill, not ILL.

  • Questions or problems logging in? Contact ILL whenever the office is open – Monday through Friday, 8:00 AM – 5:00 PM.


Placing ill requests

Filling out the forms

Filling Out the Forms

  • One request per form, please!

  • University of Delaware call numbers must be entered on the request form and are found in DELCAT: http://delcat.udel.edu.

  • All requests will automatically be assigned a transaction number (TN) in the ILLiad system. Correspondence and tracking will include that TN.

  • If your library patron’s name is provided, it will print out on the item’s accompanying paperwork.

  • Billing does not apply to most Delaware ILL transactions and can be left blank.

  • Please add any notes or additional information in the Notes field.


What s next for ill lending services at the university of delaware library

What’s Next for ILL Lending Services at the University of Delaware Library?

  • Increased electronic delivery of articles instead of fax or mail.

  • Continuing improvements to the ILLiad webpages to make them user-friendly and easy to use.

  • Any suggestions about the ILLiad webpages?

  • ILLiad version 8 will be released later this year; enhancements to lending capabilities are unknown at this time.
