Discovery to Delivery: enabling an unmediated resource discovery and delivery service in a collaborative context Cathie Jilovsky & Michael Robinson
CAVAL About CAVAL Major programs include – CAVAL Reciprocal Borrowing Program – CARM Shared Collection Fee for Service activities CAVAL – Relais International partnership – Relais ILL support, HelpDesk, implementation – Relais D2D / CAVAL D2D
Relais D2D Functionality – Unmediated discovery, request & delivery, load balanced, no ‘dead ends’ for users System neutral application Uses NCIP protocol In operation through several resource sharing networks in North America
Pilot Implementation Aims Proof of concept Timelines Initial participants – RMIT, ACU, CAVAL CARM Shared Collection
Project Challenges & Issues ALMA – Relais integration Additional participant (UNSW) Relais ILL & D2D back-end integration Development by Ex Libris & Relais International Loans policies & management
Requesting library loan the item to their patron – NCIP can be used to initiate a transaction to the LMS
Book is returned by the patron, returned in CAVALBorrow (the system anticipates the next action required and sends NCIP message as required) and sent back.
Item available in D2D – clicking request initiates a redirection to in-house Relais ILL system
Project Outcomes CAVALborrow network established Delivers un-mediated seamless access to users across disparate library systems Back-end integration of Relais ILL & D2D First live transactions December 2014 Full operational mode 2015
CAVAL Developmental Stages Opportunity to join established network Need for critical mass of resources Integration with CAVAL Reciprocal Borrowing Program (for CAVAL members) Linking of CAVALborrow and BONUS+ networks - potential and challenges National unmediated resource sharing?
