DUBLIN, Ohio, Dec. 6, 2001—OCLC ILLiad interlibrary loan management software has completed ISO ILL testing and is now fully compliant with ISO ILL standards.
OCLC ILLiad interlibrary loan management software has completed ISO ILL testing and is now fully compliant with ISO ILL standards.
"OCLC ILLiad has always offered the most flexible options for requesting interlibrary loans," said Tony Melvyn, OCLC senior consulting product support specialist. "Now that it has become ISO ILL compliant, the software provides users with additional sources from which to request material. ISO ILL within ILLiad increases options for international interlibrary loan, allowing users greater access to materials around the globe."
OCLC ILLiad software is a comprehensive interlibrary loan management system that automates routine borrowing and lending functions within a library’s interlibrary loan department. OCLC ILLiad also provides a web interface that empowers library end users to submit ILL requests and allows them to track the status of their requests 24 hours a day, seven days a week, without library staff intervention.
To celebrate ISO ILL implementation, OCLC will be offering a 10 percent discount on all OCLC ILLiad purchases ordered and installed by June 30, 2002. "This is a perfect opportunity for libraries to see what OCLC ILLiad can do to help streamline the interlibrary loan process," said Mr. Melvyn.
OCLC ILLiad was developed by the interlibrary loan staff at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, and has been expanded and further enhanced by Atlas Systems, Inc. Atlas Systems is the primary software developer for OCLC ILLiad and, in conjunction with OCLC, provides system support and documentation for users of OCLC ILLiad.
ISO ILL 10160/10161 is the international standard for interlibrary loan-the technical definition of a series of messages and a set of rules on how to use those messages to conduct interlibrary loan between systems.
