Planning for 100% Document Delivery: Workflow and Staffing Instruction and PR

Workflows: ACCESS SERVICES Mission Serve as first point of contact for information and welcome. Promote a safe and pleasant environment conducive to study and research. Access Services Desk Staff Processing from ILL/DD, Reserves, Circulation Services Materials from HC, DPS, and Lending Libraries Access Services Patron Assistance
Our GOAL:Speedy Delivery 24x5 Software OPTIONS explored Library Catalog vs. ILLiad REQUEST FULFILLED ITEM PULLED REQUEST MADE
Next steps:Needs analysis Required two-hour turn around time Unmediated requesting by visitors Requesting multiple volumes Requesting articles scanned Requesting book chapters Request Purchase Verifying Copyright Transparency of Estimated Delivery date
Use Illiad/III for requesting? (where to put the button) III Illiad Request It Button Mediated Visitor requesting o Requesting multiple volumes (could add notes field) Requesting articles scanned o Requesting book chapters Request Purchase o Request need by date/time (as opposed to not needed by date) o Transparency of Estimated Delivery date Cannot put request button in ENCORE ILLiad Form Unmediated Visitor requesting o Requesting multiple volumes (could add notes field) Requesting articles scanned Requesting book chapters Request Purchase ? Request need by date/time (as opposed to not needed by date) ? Transparency of Estimated Delivery date (can be done by number of days) Cannot put in ENCORE Bonus: direct delivery through BSCANN ILL (now up and running saving valuable time for the user)
Request Item is for print volumes. Dartmouth (DarthDoc) (It includes what is traditionally known as “interlibrary loan”. No scraping – requests done outside the catalog on separate ILL form)
Similar for Boulder…
University of Wyoming. RequestIt uses ILLiad for articles and books. No use of ENCORE – search Summon and link to Classic record.
University of Arizona uses WorldCat Local – BUT… puts both types of requesting in the webpage for the record. University of Arizona (Express Delivery)
Request Selection (ILLiad link) Request Volume We could do both and use language like “Request Volume” and Request Selection” for example…
Our GOAL: Speedy Delivery around the clock PHYSICAL ITEMS: A book is requested from the Classic Catalog using “RequestIt” The Request goes to the print hold slip queue Stacks Maintenance prints the hold slips and pulls the material Materials pulled go the Circ Desk Circ Staff Activates the hold and Circ Staff sends pickup notices DD staff also check the View Holds queue for items not available (currently checked out/missing/etc.) Redirects these requests to Prospector or traditional ILL REQUEST FULFILLED ITEM PULLED REQUEST MADE
Our GOAL: Speedy Delivery 24x5 ARTICLES A request is made ILL/Document Delivery Staff verifies the citation and holdings. If we own the material in print DD staff moves the request to the DD queue (in stacks searching) Stacks Staff prints DD pull slips Pulls the materials DPS Scans the Item and delivers requests.
