June 2, 2008. Relais International is pleased to announce that the Australian Commonwealth Scientific and Research Organization (CSIRO) has selected and is implementing Relais ILL as their ILL management system. The system will be hosted by Relais International in our offices in Ottawa, Canada. The system will include the Relais Access web-based pages that allow library patrons to create and monitor their own ILL requests.
The system also includes the Relais Scanning Module. The Scanning Module is fully integrated with Relais ILL for seamless electronic delivery of items to patrons and other libraries. Library staff can convert paper documents to electronic format by scanning, or they can use existing electronic documents anywhere on their network for desktop delivery to their patrons. Delivery can be done via FTP to Ariel, Post to Web, Email attachment, or fax.
Clare MacKeigan, COO of Relais International, is pleased to welcome CSIRO to the growing list of Relais customers in Australia. CSIRO is expected to be in production with the Relais ILL system by August 2008. CSIRO is Australia’s premier research organization which provides scientific solutions to industry, governments and communities around the world. Relais ILL will be used by staff in multiple CSIRO offices throughout Australia.
