Interlibrary loan (ILL) is the service that gives you access to the resources of other libraries. You can use ILL to borrow books and media, and get PDFs of articles and book chapters. Bellarmine is moving to a new system to manage interlibrary loan. Instead of the separate ILLiad system, Interlibrary Loan will now be integrated into Worldshare Management Services (WMS), which is our current library circulation and discovery service (WorldCat Discovery).
There will be a new user interface for creating and managing requests, and you will notice a few differences from the previous system (ILLiad). The new service will show all of your requests on a single page, links to articles, and details about the status of your requests and item due dates. You may also submit new requests from this interface. The e-mails that we send you with status updates look slightly different as well. Bellarmine University Library patrons will be able to log into the new interface with an existing library account to create and manage interlibrary loan requests.
We are currently planning to switch to the new system on Monday January 30th, so it would be wise to save or print any recently received articles in ILLiad, as that interface will be ending. We hope that these changes enhance your library experience and streamline how you manage your requests. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact John Boyd at email@example.com 502.272.8314.
