End of Support for ILLiad 8.6

ILLiad version 8.6 will not work with OCLC as of December 31, 2018. You must upgrade to ILLiad version 8.7 (or later version) by December 30, 2018, so you do not lose access to OCLC interlibrary loan. We will announce an ILLiad maintenance release date in the summer 2018.

Plan your ILLiad upgrade or Tipasa migration

  • Users of ILLiad hosted should contact their hosted service provider to schedule an update.
  • Self-hosted ILLiad users can run the server updater and then update client workstations.
  • ILLiad users interested in migrating to Tipasa before 8.6 is discontinued should reach out to oclcresourcesharing@oclc.org.

Additional details about ILLiad version 8.7

OCLC ILLiad software was developed by the interlibrary loan staff at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University and has been expanded and further enhanced by Atlas Systems, Inc., the primary developer for OCLC ILLiad. Atlas Systems continues to be a vital provider to OCLC for support and development of this product.

ILLiad allows you to replace paper-based workflows, manage a high volume of requests and automate routine functions for borrowing and lending resources between libraries with integration into a variety of third-party systems. ILLiad allows your users to place and monitor their requests without librarian assistance and to get materials quickly.
