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.

Types of Work Request Types

When you add a new WRO, you need to select the appropriate Work Request Type for the task being initiated. There are currently more than 30 types of work request forms available online. Forms will continue to be added as needed. For details about what each WRO form requires, see Work Request Form and Purpose.

Filing a WRO

Except for the “Other” work request type, each work request form has at least two sections/pages.

The first page is where you select the Work Request Type from the drop-down menu, select your Library Affiliation from the drop-down menu, and supply the name, email address, and phone number of the library staff member who will be the Primary Contact for the work being requested. The person filing the WRO must also enter the name, email address, and phone number of their library’s I-Share Liaison.  Both of these contacts will receive a copy of all future correspondence regarding the individual WRO.

There is also a security question at the bottom of the page, to help prevent spam in the system.  After all of these required fields have been populated, press “Next” to continue.

The second page is the body of the work request.  The different types of work requests will have different fields that must be completed, in order for the library to specify the parameters of the individual WRO.  For example, the work request type for Voyager Patron Load will ask for the name of the input file, and which field in the records should be used for de-duplication, among other options. After all fields on the second page have been populated,  press “Next” to continue.

Most WRO forms also have a third page containing a Notes field where the staff member can add any additional information about the individual WRO.

To navigate from one page of the work request to another, use the buttons at the bottom of the window ("Next" and "Back" buttons).

Submitting Your WRO

Once all information regarding the individual request has been entered into the WRO form, press the “Add New Work Request” to submit the WRO.  A confirmation will display on the screen with a summary of the content of the WRO, and an email will be generated automatically via the CARLI support system.  Future correspondence regarding any WROs is done via email reply to the ticket.
