“Helping out other libraries...”
“The time WorldShare ILL saves me translates into helping out other libraries. I find joy in filling a request after multiple libraries before me passed due to an incorrect or incomplete citation.”

Tipasa, the world’s first cloud-based interlibrary loan management system, enables you to manage a high volume of interlibrary loan requests, automate routine borrowing and lending functions, and provide an enhanced patron experience. You can meet your library users’ needs without heavy IT support, server management, or extensive configuration and training.
Here at OCLC, we're committed to collaborating with libraries to continue developing Tipasa features and functionality. We'd like to work with you to learn more about the needs of your library staff and patrons. Opportunities for getting involved include usability testing, general workshops, discussions, and more.
“The whole thing is more intuitive than what we were using before. I love how easy it is to see everything in the queues… We knew this would be an improvement for our patrons and our workflow, and it has been. We’ve been glad to be there from the start as an early adopter.”

D2D (Discovery to Delivery) is a market-leading consortial borrowing solution that provides key features guaranteeing the best experience for library users, such as requestability logic that dramatically improves ILL fill rates and integration with other library systems.
It optimizes users’ ability to discover library resources within your consortium and get immediate access to or request delivery of the material with little or no intervention from library staff. It also provides the tools staff need to request and track material that cannot be filled within the consortium.
