Half the Work: Circulating Lending and Borrowing Requests from ILLiad in Alma Using NCIP - 2016 ILLiad Conference
The NCIP addon streamlines processing of both lending and borrowing requests automatically within existing ILLiad work flows. Circulation desk staff need only know one system, the local ILS, rather than ILLiad’s circulation functionality too. Patrons only need to look in one place to see all of their loans or outstanding requests. Lending staff no longer have to update requests to shipped and then check the item out in the circulation module. No more pseudopatrons. Everybody wins!
