Abstract: Relais International is pleased to announce that the Covenant Theological Seminary (Saint Louis, MO) has selected the Relais ILL Hosted Service.


Relais International is pleased to announce that the Covenant Theological Seminary (Saint Louis, MO) has selected the Relais ILL Hosted Service.

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

The library uses Innovative Interfaces Millennium integrated library system. The order was received as part of our partnership with the Missouri Library Network Corporation (MLNC) which provides their members with discounts for Relais software products.

Jim Pakala, Library Director at Covenant Theological Seminary says "we are looking forward to working with Relais staff and getting Relais ILL up and running. It will help our staff streamline our workflow. One of the big benefits is Relais' integrated scanning module and the ability of Relais to send to and receive from libraries using both Ariel and Odyssey."

Clare MacKeigan, COO of Relais International, says "We are very happy to welcome the staff of the Covenant Theological Seminary to the growing family of Relais customers in the United States." The implementation is expected to be completed by the summer of 2011.

The J. Oliver Buswell Jr. Library of the Covenant Theological Seminary supports the research of faculty and students. In addition to the Library's collection of books and other materials, faculty and students have access to dozens of electronic databases, which provide access to a larger world of information. The Library also houses the Tait Rare Book Collection. In addition, the PCA Historical Center, housed in the library building, contains unique material of interest to many faculty, students, and visitors. The Student Computer Center, also in the Library, assists students in the tasks of biblical exegesis and paper writing.
