Enhancements to Article Exchange document sharing site

OCLC has released several enhancements to the Article Exchange document sharing site, in response to user requests.

  • More information in Article Exchange e-mails

    E-mails generated when a lender launches Article Exchange from a Pending or In-Process request now include citation data from the ILL request. In addition, the e-mail now includes the OCLC ILL transaction number and ILLiad transaction number. The addition of citation data and transaction numbers to Article Exchange e-mails will help staff at lending libraries track the status of these request.
