Tell us how your library manages interlibrary loan borrowing on behalf of other libraries

Thank you for agreeing to participate in a pilot of new WorldShare Interlibrary Loan functionality for libraries that manage interlibrary loan borrowing on behalf of other libraries.

We are finalizing preparations for the initial release of new features in WorldShare ILL that will simplify the way you manage requests for other libraries. This release is scheduled to occur on Sunday, November 10, 2013. Once the new functionality is available, we will proceed with the pilot.

Your participation in the upcoming pilot program will insure that your library has fully implemented new, more efficient workflows offered by WorldShare ILL well in advance of the discontinuation of your use of WorldCat Resource Sharing.

Please complete this form to provide information that will help us set up your library for participation in this pilot.
