Managing ILL Policies and Fees

Tip of the Week March 13, 2014

OCLC WorldShare® Interlibrary Loan displays your ILL fee range based on what you have defined in the OCLC® Policies Directory.  Accurate fee information assists you and other libraries in completing interlibrary loans. To make sure your fees are as clear as possible, update your policies in the Policies Directory.

To update your ILL fees and policies, log in to the OCLC Policies Directory and update your library’s information under the Policies tab.  Remember to create multiple policies if you have different fees for different groups or types of libraries (for example, free for in state libraries, but charge for out of state).

For further information, please see the Policies Directory quick reference.

Contact OCLC Customer Support at or OCLC Support in your region.
