Notice: There are limits on the size of files that can be attached and sent, both individually and as a group. Individual files cannot exceed 4MB (approximately), but any file that takes longer than 90 seconds to attach to the form probably is too big to be sent. The total size limit for all attachments is approximately 10 MB, regardless of the number of files involved.

If all else fails, users may contact OCLC Research to explore alternatives to any problems they encounter.
