BRI aka: The British Library is using Ariel!

If you remember, I mentioned a few weeks back that the British Library does not transmit requests via Ariel, because it was a copyright violation. Well, it seems that times have change, because we received a document last week that was sent to us via Ariel.

So, you say, what is the problem….the problem is that we CANNOT transmit it to the patron. So, when doing the Electronic Delivery, be sure to look to see who is sending the document. IF it is BRI, we need to print the article out and delete it, UPDATE ILLiad then contact the patron to come in and pick it up.

Library MCW and Odyssey

MCW is having a problem with receiving Odyssey documents. I have posted a note to this effect on the computer by the scanner.

UA’s: If you see an article request from MCW, be sure to code it for Ariel, not Odyssey. Unfortunately, I have attempted to un-click this in Address Management in ILLiad, but every time a new request is downloaded, it will overwrite my edits.

Students: If you notice that the UA’s have missed this, just automatically send documents to MCW via Ariel.
