What is the difference?

OSU experiences dramatic increase in online lending using Odyssey

In October 2006, 61% of filled article requests at OSU were delivered via Odyssey, compared to 36% filled via Odyssey in October 2005. What a difference a year makes! We've reduced the number of articles we send in paper to a trickle, and our ARIEL use has dropped significantly as many libraries now turn to Odyssey. In Ohio, many schools that had never sent articles electronically in the past are now using the free Odyssey Standalone client.

We are pleased and amazed at how many other locations are increasingly using Odyssey within ILLiad or the free Odyssey Standalone software.“

Ohio State University Interlibrary Services (OSU)Brian D. Miller, Lending / Document Delivery Service Coordinator

Odyssey has revolutionized our Interlibrary Loan department. Two years ago, our article turnaround time was a terrible 11 days and our loan turnaround time was 14. Today, our article turnaround time is anywhere between 2 hours and 2 days. Once we were comfortable using Odyssey for Interlibrary loan lending and borrowing, we spread our wings to Local Document Delivery. In other words, we use Odyssey to supply copies of in house articles to our patrons desktop. The faculty, students, and staff of Akron's campus LOVE us.
