The Library is implementing a new system to manage interlibrary loans called World Share Interlibrary Loan Prime. The system will streamline interlibrary loan service. Interlibrary loan (ILL) is the service that gives you access to the resources of other libraries. You can use ILL to borrow books, and to obtain PDFs of articles and book chapters that the library does not own. The new system contains functionality that will speed the fulfillment of interlibrary loan requests. Patrons will use their BLS username and password to sign on and make requests. The system will go live on January 23, 2017.
Current ILLiad Users:
There is a new user interface for creating and managing requests. You will notice a few difference from ILLiad, the previous system. The new service displays all of your requests on a single page, links to articles, and details about the status of your request and item due dates. You can also submit new requests from this interface. The emails and notifications that you receive will look a little different as well. For those who have outstanding requests in ILLiad, those requests will transfer over to the new system.
We hope that these changes enhance your library experience and streamline how you manage your requests! If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact the Interlibrary Loan Team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
