  • WorldShare ILL
  • Tipasa
  • ILLiad

In the Policies Directory setting the “International Lender” to None is just informational.  It is not a deflection policy. 

You can have the “International Lender” listed as None and trust that most libraries from overseas will check before sending you a request.

1. Login to the Policies Directory.

2.  Go to the Policies Tab.

3. Edit the Loan and/or Copies policies.

4.  Under Location, select Include select your country (for example United States) as the Country, you will be listed as None in the International Lender section of the Policies Directory.
