IFLA vouchers from OCLC

OCLC members in the United States and Canada may purchase IFLA vouchers from OCLC.  Member libraries can pay for IFLA Vouchers through their monthly OCLC billing or via Interlibrary Loan Fee Management (IFM). 

OCLC has added this purchase option to help streamline international interlibrary loan processes for OCLC members who use WorldShare Interlibrary Loan, WorldCat Resource Sharing and ILLiad and accommodate payment preferences.

IFLA provides re-usable vouchers to help libraries easily pay for international interlibrary loan requests. Each voucher represents a standard payment for one transaction. Half-value vouchers are also available.

OCLC members may purchase full- and half-value IFLA vouchers from OCLC at the following prices:

  • Full voucher: $ 12.00 CAN/US each (no shipping charge)
  • Half voucher: $  6.00  CAN/US each (no shipping charge)

Orders of less than $ 100 US will be shipped at no charge via the US Postal Service and orders over $ 100 US will be shipped at no charge via UPS ground, for tracking purposes.
