Lending site can decline, pull copy for patron pickup or ship the item
Select Pull Copy when the patron is going to pick up the item. (checkout occurs at the lending library)
Select Ship It when the item needs to be sent to the requesting library. In this case, the checkout occurs at the requesting library.

Item was shipped and is now “En Route”
The “Remove” button will delete the hold request and mark the item as lost at the lending site
Once item is received, the librarian can “Receive” the request. Receiving the item sets the Ready Hold flag
Shows the status of the item after selecting “Receive”
If duplicate barcode, both the ILL copy and your local copy will be displayed
When the ILL copy is checked in, a message appears indicating that the item must be returned to the lending site and its status is changed to “Returning”.
When the lending site receives the item, select the Receive button.
