SDLN update - Important information for ILL users

The migration to the new software for the library catalog is mostly complete.

The one exception to a successful migration was the Inter Library Loan (ILL) function. This part of the system is aparently badly broken. We anticipate the ILL functionality of the catalog will not be available for several weeks.

The good news is, we have a backup system that on campus users can access.

To place your interlibrary loan request go to http://www.worldcat.org find the record for the item that you would like us to borrow for you. Click on request item, fill out the form that opens. You will need to fill in only the fields marked with an * for books.

For copies of journal articles find the record for the journal, fill out the form and enter the vol, number, and pages desired into the Comments field.

If you have questions or problems please contact Scott (mailto:Scott.Hall@sdsmt.edu)
