ILLiad and Odyssey Interlibrary Loan Connectors

InterLibrary Loan (ILL) is a service that allows patrons of one library access to materials at another library, either by physical or digital delivery.  Individual library patrons will make a request through their library, which will then facilitate sending the loan request to the lending library. The lending library will then attempt to deliver the requested materials.

Scannx has partnered with Atlas systems and OCLC to simplify the InterLibrary Loan fulfillment process.

With the Scannx software, the delivery process has been simplified, and no longer requires a specialized system in the back room. Simply scan the pick sheet on the Scannx Book ScanCenter which scans the TN number automatically. Then the library staff scans all pages requested, using the scanner's book edge to reduce gutter shadow and stress on the book spine. When finished, press Next on the Book ScanCenter when prompted, and the rest of the delivery is automated.
