Once you have retrieved items from your library, you will need to update them in ILLiad.
- From the ILLiad main screen, click on the Document Delivery ribbon.
- Click Update Stacks Search.
- Search for the transaction. You can Scan the barcode from the pull slip, or manually enter the transaction number or other information.
- Click the Search button. The request will appear in the grid.
- Make any needed changes (for example, altering the due date).
- Move the request to the next step.
When searching for requests, you can use the In Stacks Searching Only toggle button to limit your search to only requests at the status of In DD Stacks Searching.
Moving the Transaction to the Next Step
The next step in the process may differ depending on the nature of the transaction:
Mark Found if you found the item and you are able to loan it to the customer. This will route the request to Awaiting Doc Del
Customer Contact. If Billing for Document Delivery is turned on,
it will first bring up the Add Billing Charges form. See Awaiting DocDel Customer Contact for instructions on contacting customers.
|Mark Not Found
Mark Not Found if the item cannot be loaned, but may still be able
to be borrowed. The Reasons for Not Found list will open, and you
can select a reason from the list. These reasons can be edited in
the ILLiad Customization Manager. The request will then be routed
to Doc Del Item Not Found. From this status, you can route items
back to Borrowing.
Cancel the request if the item cannot be loaned and it can not be
borrowed. The Reason for Cancellation list will open, and you can
select a reason from the list. These reasons can be edited in the
ILLiad Customization Manager. You can check the Send E-mail
box to send the patron an email, and the Edit E-mail box to first
edit the email you send. The request will then be routed to
Cancelled by ILL Staff and if desired, an email will be sent.
|Mark Found Scan Now
Mark Found Scan Now for articles that will be scanned and
delivered to the customer electronically via Odyssey. The
Document Delivery Scanning form will display. This will allow you
to scan and send the article immediately.
|Mark Found Scan
Mark Found Scan Later for articles that will be scanned and
delivered electronically via Odyssey, but not immediately. The
request will be moved to the status of Awaiting Doc Del
Scanning, and scanning can be done at a later time.
Notify Electronic Delivery designates the item as found and moves
the transaction to Delivered to Web. This is used for scanning the
article using software other than Odyssey. These items will need to
be scanned, converted to PDF, and then saved to the PDF share
drive (usually x:\inetpub\wwwroot\illiad\pdf) with the filename as
the transaction number of the request.
TIP: Institutions that use this feature find it beneficial to do the
scanning and posting functions before clicking the Notify Electronic
Delivery button. This is because the status changes to Delivered to
Web immediately after clicking the button and an email is sent to
the customer notifying them that the file is available for viewing.
