Library Unique Title Counts FY 2004

The Unique Titles column represents the number of titles in your library held by no other I-Share library.

UB Stat 2: Incoming ILL FY2004

Incoming ILL represents items borrowed by your patrons from other I-Share libraries. An On-site borrowing transaction is one in which your patron visits the other library and completes the circulation transaction there. A Remote borrowing transaction is one in which your patron requests an item, the item is sent to your library, and is charged at your library.

UB Stat 1: Outgoing ILL FY2004

Outgoing ILL represents items loaned by your library to each I-Share library and the ILLINET libraries. An On-site lending transaction is one in which the patron of the other library walks in to your library to complete the circulation transaction. A remote lending transaction is one in which the patron from the other library requests the item, the item is sent to their desired pickup location, and is charged there.

Using Work Requests Online

Work Request Online (WRO) is a web-based system that I-Share libraries use to file work requests that are processed by CARLI technical staff, including customized Voyager Access queries, Oracle account applications, and batch job requests such as patron data loads or bulk import of bibliographic records. This service offers filing, updating, and tracking functionality for work requests submitted to CARLI.

HathiTrust & VuFind Webinar Recording Available

CARLI recently introduced access to public domain, electronic full-text materials in the HathiTrust collection via the I-Share union catalog. Member libraries are now considering whether to incorporate the same HathiTrust records into default searches of their local catalogs as well.  So the question is: to Hathi or not to Hathi?

Responsibilities of I-Share Library Liaisons

I-Share Standardized Universal Borrowing Policies Effective August 4, 2010

On August 4, 2010, CARLI implemented changes to standardize the policies that apply to I-Share Universal Borrowing (UB) activity. “Universal Borrowing” is the Voyager module that supports interlibrary resource sharing among the 76 I-Share libraries. Any time an I-Share library patron requests or borrows an item from an I-Share library other than their “home” library, Universal Borrowing policies are invoked.
