Unmediated requesting with Direct Request lightens your workload by automatically pushing user requests to valid lending libraries based on criteria you set. When one of your preferred lenders supplies an electronic document, your users can receive it without the need for you to review or process the request.
With a cloud-based system, you don’t have to deal with IT staff for upgrades or maintenance. Tipasa includes a simple yet powerful user interface and a simple configuration and customization interface meaning you have more time to spend on resource sharing tasks. And it uses services you're likely familiar with, such as constant data and custom holdings.
Simplify ILL payments and charges by routing all fees through your regular OCLC invoice. Interlibrary Loan Fee Management (IFM) allows you to easily reconcile all ILL fees on a monthly basis. Free your staff from calculating fees, writing and mailing checks and following up on unpaid invoices. Participating libraries report an average savings of more than $45 USD per request by eliminating invoices and check writing for individual transactions.
The WorldShare Platform is a global, cloud-based, interconnected web architecture that allows you to streamline and enhance your workflows. Just as WorldCat provides a single resource for worldwide library data, WorldShare provides a platform for managing library activities, service delivery and processes. WorldShare allows libraries to share data between applications efficiently, reducing effort and saving time for library staff.
Tipasa, the world’s first cloud-based interlibrary loan management system, allows 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 users’ needs without heavy IT support, server management or extensive configuration and training.
