OCLC Policies Directory Enhancements

 

OCLC has made several changes to the OCLC Policies Directory that expand search options and customize the number of days required to respond to interlibrary loan requests.

To effectively benefit from these and future enhancements, log in to the Policies Directory and update your library’s policies to:

  1. Indicate your library’s lender fees (or lack of fees).
  2. Set the number of days your library needs to respond to requests (if more than 4).

Search enhancements

Search by lender fee and currency


Library staff can now search the OCLC Policies Directory by lender fees and currency. The search returns a list of institutions with policies that indicate a fee of less than or equal to the amount searched. A policy must contain lender fee information in order for it to be included in search results. Libraries with no lender fee value entered in their copy or loan policies will not be included in search results.

To make sure your library is included in lender fee searches: Log in to the Policies Directory and enter a value in this field. If you do not charge a fee, enter the value “0.00” to indicate no charge.

In August 2012, OCLC will enter a default value of 0.00 (zero) in the fee field for all libraries that have not yet entered this information. At this time, if you wish to represent a fee other than 0.00, you must update your Policies Directory profile with this information.

NEW: Set the number of days your library needs to respond to requests

As part of our preparation for the new OCLC WorldShare™ Interlibrary Loan service, library staff can now indicate the number of days they require to respond to an ILL request. This new setting goes beyond the “Enter my symbol twice” option to enable setting this value to 4, 8, 12, 16 or 20 days.

With the release of this enhancement on May 20, we set every library’s default to 4 days. If you wish to change your response timeframe to 8, 12, 16 or 20 days, log in to the Policies Directory to make the change.

In addition, library staff may now search on the number of days needed to respond to a request. In the future, the new WorldShare™ Interlibrary Loan service will use the setting to display this information when library holdings are displayed.
