ILLiad version 8.1 now available


OCLC and Atlas Systems have released version 8.1 of the ILLiad interlibrary loan management suite software.

Enhancements in the new version include new Word document templates using Excel data files and Odyssey support for sending and receiving documents in PDF format.

ILLiad 8.1 completes the migration to ILLiad 8.0 ribbon-based interface and removes the previous requirement of using the Borland Database Engine (BDE). Use of the Microsoft .NET communications framework and C# as the programming language will make ILLiad development more agile and flexible to accomodate future needs of member libraries.

Additional information about ILLiad version 8.1 are available in the following:

Enhancements include:

  • IFM charges for incoming borrowing items are now reflected in service reports.

  • Additional user-defined fields are available for client Web pages.
