Relais International is pleased to announce that the Saskatchewan Provincial Library in Regina, Saskatchewan, has selected Relais ILL as their ILL management and Document Delivery system. Relais ILL will allow the Provincial Library staff to manage the ILL functions for public and regional libraries throughout the province of Saskatchewan. The system will be hosted by Relais International in our offices in Ottawa, Canada.

The Hosted Service will include the Relais Access web-based pages that allow library patrons to create and monitor their own ILL requests. Staff in the regional libraries will use a new and enhanced web-based staff interface to allow them to process ILL requests. The system also includes the Relais Scanning Module which is fully integrated with Relais ILL for seamless electronic delivery of items to patrons and to other libraries.

There are seven regional libraries in Saskatchewan: Lakeland Library Region (North Battleford area), Wapiti Regional Library (Prince Albert area), Wheatland Regional Library (Saskatoon area), Parkland Regional Library (Yorkton area), Chinook Regional Library (Swift Current area), Palliser Regional Library (Moose Jaw area), and Southeast Regional Library (Weyburn area). Each regional library consists of a large geographical area with a substantial population and represents a group of cities, towns, villages and rural municipalities that have joined together to deliver library services. Clare MacKeigan, COO of Relais International, is pleased to welcome the Saskatchewan Provincial Library to our growing family of customers in Canada.
