2  A resource sharing system created by the ILL staff at Colorado State in 1997.  It is for articles only.  Let’s take a look at the Rapid Home Page: RapidILL

3  Rising serial costs had forced us to cut many titles and serial packages.  After these cuts, we expected to get our patrons what they needed via traditional ILL as well as through commercial suppliers.  The reality of the situation – regular ILL was not quite good enough, and we relied more and more on commercial suppliers.

4  Mostly for the turnaround.  Some concern about budget – i.e., the high cost of commercial document suppliers.

5  Choose a “pod” or group – again let’s go back to the Rapid website.Rapid website.  Send a file of serial holdings which goes into the centralized database of your pod or group.  Training.  Trial Period.

6  $9,000 (USD) set-up fee.  $8,000 (USD) annual fee.  Agreement to turnaround article requests from your partners within 24 hours.  Agreement that you do not charge your partners for articles supplied.

7  Received 3,961 articles out of 4,163 requests – that’s a fill rate of over 95%.  Turnaround time was under 24 hours.  $4.29 (USD) per article.  Article requests sent via OCLC – the turnaround time was approximately 5 days.

8  Before Rapid (fiscal year 2005-2006) over $90,000 on British Library Inside, Ingenta, CISTI, and others.  After Rapid (fiscal year 2006-2007) less than $20,000.

9  Forget about saving money by not using commercial doc suppliers.  Put aside those figures of set-up and annual fees.  The real cost lies in reciprocation.

10  That first year we supplied 7,930 articles.  In order to turn article requests around within the 24-hour criterion, one needs to prioritize the lending queues.  Add student help.  In general to get great service, we needed to commit ourselves to providing great service.

12  Borrowing requests go into ILLiad.  If an article request contained an ISSN or OCLC number and a volume year, we would launch the Rapid Client, which searched the database for a match.  If a match was found, we would click OK, import the Rapid number, and mark the request as sent.

15  The Rapid Manager has automated the process.  As soon as requests clear copyright, if these requests have ISSN or OCLC #’s and years of publication and if there is a match with the holdings of our ARL partners, they are sent via Rapid.  The requests are virtually direct requests with no staff intervention.

17  When we sent in our serial holdings, we asked that Rapid block any requests to electronic journals.  Later we were able to unblock any e-serials the licensing agreements of which allowed for ILL.  This allowed us to deal with our licensing agreements piecemeal, rather than deflecting all requests for articles from e-journals.

18  Allows lending libraries to send articles in.tif or.pdf formats regardless of whether the libraries prefer to receive via Ariel or Odyssey.  RapidX inserts a cover sheet and updates the request to “filled”.  Basically RapidX simplifies the process of electronic delivery.

19  Let’s go to Notre Dame’s Rapid web site Let’s go to Notre Dame’s Rapid web site  Sending requests to branch libraries.  Real-time statistics.  Collection development tool.

20  Software designed for interlibrary loan that allows for automatic processing, routing, and load leveling.  Holdings database tailored to resource sharing needs.  Such features as RapidX.

21  Specific holdings information.  The commitment to turn article requests around in 24 hours.  The fact that these efforts are monitored.  The RapidILL staff.
