New WorldShare ILL features include editable emails

The April release includes changes to OCLC WorldShare® Interlibrary Loan that continue to reflect input from the OCLC ILL community. Several user-suggested enhancements were included with this release, two of which are described below. For complete details on all enhancements included in the April release, consult the WorldShare ILL Release Notes.

Emails are fully editable

The emails sent from WorldShare ILL can now be edited by users prior to sending. This will allow libraries to remove extraneous or private information from the emails based on what is needed by the recipient of the email.

Users open up the email dialog by clicking on the email button in the upper right buttons on a request.


Clicking on the email button opens up the Email Request dialog. The entire contents of the request are included and can be edited by users. Additionally library staff can type an explanatory note in the email if desired.


Improved navigation for staff request creation from WorldCat Discovery

ILL staff who choose to search and create requests from WorldCat Discovery now have improved navigation. The two browser tabs for WorldCat Discovery and WorldShare ILL now both remain open. Once a search is completed in WorldCat Discovery and a WorldShare ILL session is opened, users can now click between the tabs rather than opening a different tab for each request that is created in WorldShare ILL.

Integration with Get It Now

WorldShare ILL now includes the option to purchase materials through Get It Now mediated service. See Release Notes for full details on how to utilize this new functionality.
