OCLC Reasons For No

Print Friendly and PDF Follow

To help identify requests cancelled as a result of closures during COVID-19, OCLC has repurposed reason 24 Preferred Delivery Time Not Possible to be used specifically during the COVID-19 outbreak.

The LendingReasonsForCancellation (found in the ILLiad Customization Manager under Lending | Cancellations) table translates the user-friendly text in the Lending cancellation Reason field to the OCLC, Docline, and ISO ILL codes that are used to update requests. ILLiad uses numerical values for the OCLC Code to match the ISO ILL values.

The Reasons for No display can be found in two locations on the Borrowing request form:

  1. The Detail page under the Imported Request tab
  2. The OCLC page under the Holdings tab in the Previous Requests box

The LendingReasonsForCancellation table located in the Customization Manager at Lending | Cancellations translates the user-friendly text in the Reason field of the table to OCLC, DOCLINE and ISO ILL codes for updating those items. ILLiad uses the numerical value versus the text value for the OCLC Code because those reasons are also used when canceling ISO ILL requests, and ISO uses numerical values. Note that the numerical reasons for 21 and 22 are not used by ISO and that 26 is not used by any system. See Lending Reasons for Cancellation for more information.
