Interlibrary loan

Last updated: 31-05-2024

Patron ILL requests are managed in the User services > Interlibrary loan requests menu. This page lists the requests received with a pick-up location corresponding to the librarian's current library. It is possible to create a request for a patron from this view, and the patron can create them himself from the public interface.

In the patron account (public and professional), only ILL requests created less than six months ago are displayed, unless they still have “pending” status. For internal management, the API and the list of requests in the professional view display all ILL requests.

Requests are managed manually using the Status and Loan Status fields.
