Relais International is pleased to announce that the Monash University Library in Victoria, Australia has selected and is implementing Relais ILL as their ILL management and Document Delivery 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. Relais ILL will interface with the library’s Voyager integrated Library System.

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 to other libraries. Library staff can convert paper documents to electronic format by scanning, or they can use existing electronic documents (TIFF and PDF formats) anywhere on their network for desktop delivery to their patrons. Delivery can be done via FTP to Ariel, Odyssey, Post to Web, Email attachment, or fax. The system can also receive electronic documents from Ariel and Odyssey workstations from other libraries.

Monash University Library is one of Australia’s leading academic libraries with multiple locations and a collection of more than 2.8 million items. Clare MacKeigan, COO of Relais International, is pleased to welcome Monash University to the growing list of academic and research libraries in Australia that have implemented the Relais ILL system.
