ONLINE INTER-LIBRARY LOANS REQUESTING & DELIVERY Laurence Lockton University of Bath firstname.lastname@example.org
ACTUALLY THIS IS MORE ABOUT ONLINE ARTICLE REQUEST & DELIVERY… …but users are used to Inter-library loans.
SECURE ELECTRONIC DELIVERY ILL & doc del free to members of the University. ~75% of requests for journal articles. SED launched by the British Library in 2003, using Relais to send PDFs. Now 60p cheaper to the library
SECURE ELECTRONIC DELIVERY Faster and more convenient for requesters. Requesters must download and print document within 14 days (unless copyright fee paid.) Students will have to pay to print.
ONLINE REQUEST FORM Login on University webserver over encrypted connection. Authentication against Kerberos. Person_id from LDAP, same as alt ID in Unicorn. Token passed to my CGI script in URL redirect.
ONLINE REQUEST FORM CGI script generates API transactions. Checks users entitlement, privilege and user status using Display1 User. Places request using Create and Edit Request commands.
ONLINE REQUEST FORM Single request form for all formats. Creates JOURILL or BOOKILL format request, ILL staff will change conference, standards and theses requests as necessary. Easier than booking a flight on easyJet!
