Simplify the complexities of resource sharing.

Manage your technology without IT support

Because Tipasa is cloud-based, you receive software updates and enhancements automatically. You and your staff can access the system through any computer with an internet connection without installing additional clients. And you don’t need to rely on your IT department to manage servers and install or upgrade software.

Meet your users where they are

Tipasa allows users to place and monitor requests from anywhere, any time, on any device, without librarian assistance. They can receive customized email and text notifications, and they can access documents as soon as they become available.

Simplify your interlibrary loan processes

Tipasa's straightforward interface makes it easy to train new staff and student workers. The interface adapts to the ILL workflows that work best for your library, which simplifies your process for managing and fulfilling requests both from your users and from other libraries.

Let the system do the work for you

Tipasa allows you to automate fulfillment for specific requests based on the rules you set. If a faculty member requests an article that’s not available in your library, the request can go unmediated to one of your preferred lenders. That lender can deliver the document directly to your faculty member without the need for you to ever touch the request.
