Interlibrary Borrowing (ILB) ILLiad system outage

On Saturday, 3 January 2015, OCLC has scheduled a technology upgrade to support system performance and reliability. During this upgrade, all OCLC services will be unavailable on 3 January 2015, from 12:01 am to 3:00 pm, U.S. Eastern Standard Time (approximately 15 hours). These services include:

  • access to ILLiad and the ability to place new Interlibrary Borrowing requests
  • tracking or changing existing requests in ILLiad
  • renewing Interlibrary Borrowing books
  • access to WorldCat and WorldCat Local
  • the ability to place new requests through the BLC and BorrowDirect
  • placing requests for article delivery from the Library Storage Annex

Anyone making an Annex request through the Annex web forms or requesting physical delivery via Your Account will not be affected by this outage. Patrons will be able to contact Ask ILB, but staff will not be able to provide information about specific requests during the outage.
