Odyssey Coversheets

Follow

Odyssey can be configured to add a cover sheet to all Borrowing or Doc Del documents delivered to your patrons via Odyssey. ILLiad users often design the cover sheet to include contact information and copyright information.

Setting Up Coversheets

  1. Create a .pdf document with the information that you would like to include on the cover sheet.
  2. Save the document in the folder designated in the OdysseyPDFCoverSheetLocation key (see Customization Manager key information below).

    This document needs to be saved on the ILLiad server. It cannot be saved on local workstations. If you are hosted by OCLC or Atlas Systems, please contact customer service to have your Odyssey cover sheet placed on your server.

  3. Add the name of the cover sheet file to the OdysseyPDFCoverSheetFileName key (see Customization Manager key information below).
