Scanning articles using Reserve Room scanner

Before you do anything, make sure you can access the Scandocs folder link that I sent you via email. BOOKMARK it!

1) Scan the document using the instructions I gave you. Once the documents re scanned, they will be put into the ScandocsLibrary folder at that link I sent you.

2) Go back to the ScandocsLibrary link. Your documents will be the at the end of the file. Just keep opening the pdfs until you find them.
3) When you find them, cut and paste them to the S:Access_Services PDFs I-PILL folder. If you do not cut them, delete them from scandocs when you are done.
4) Open ILLiad and find the TN numbers and write them on the hard copy.
5) While in ILLiad, I send the “Emailed PDF” email and do a Manual RECEIVE for OCLC.
6) Go back to the S:Access_Services PDFs I-PILL folder, open the article(s) and rename them to 12345.pdf. (12345=the TN number)
7) Transfer them to the server using Filezilla.
8) Delete them from S:Access_Services PDFs I-PILL.

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.
