ILL for borrowing management centers
This page is dedicated to libraries who use WorldShare® Interlibrary Loan as a group. An ILL group in this instance consists of many member libraries submitting their ILL requests to an agent or management center, who then submits those requests to lenders on their behalf.
OCLC has created an alternative version of the new WorldShare ILL interface for borrowing management centers and group member libraries to use, to save time in managing ILL requests among one another.
Libraries participating in such a group will find video tutorials and documentation dedicated to this alternative interface on the links below. The content is divided based on whether you are a management center, or a group member library. The searching and printing functionalities are the same for centers and members, and are identical to the original WorldShare ILL interface.
Members of borrowing management groups, see Getting Started with OCLC WorldShare Interlibrary Loan.
