CCSU Theses and Dissertations

For Lending purposes and for all NON-RECIPROCAL libraries:

Full text thesis or dissertation: If we are only sending a link the cost is: $15 charge.

SCANNED COPY of thesis or dissertation, then we charge $15 for the first 20 pgs and $.25 per page thereafter.

Update it in ILLiad as follows:
1) Go to Search Stacks/Update Stacks Search: enter the TN number

a. IF sending a link: select FOUND & apply the $15 charge.
b. IF we are scanning, count the pages. Calculate this and be sure the lending library’s max cost can cover the charge. Enter the number of pages, into the “Pages” box on the update page, select found and finish the billing.  Send the item to the back room to be scanned.

Then if sending the link:
2) Go back to EDIT, search for the record. Select EMAIL “Full Text Thesis/Dissertation”
3) In Consuls find the link to the document, copy it and paste in to the email, then hit send.

ALA and NLM forms added to BORROWING

I have added two email forms to ILLiad in Borrowing. These can be used when libraries are in non-Lender status. We have a few requests that I could try now, since some libraries have gone lower-case for the holidays.

To send an ALA form to a library that is not in lending status in OCLC.
1) Enter the OCLC symbol in the Lending String box.
2) Select OTH for the system ID.
3) Click on EMAIL.
4) Paste the lending library’s email address into the “To” field.
5) Click on SEND.

The same instructions pertain to a request to NLM, (aka:The National Library of Medicine) The only difference is that when you put NLM in the lender field and select email, the NLM form will have their email address already in the “To” field.

New Procedure for Lending Emailed Articles

1) Open BScan ILL Software.  Scan Pullslip.

2) Enter the Pullslip information as follows:

Patron:  n/a, IP: ariel.ccsu.edu; Document ID:  ILL number; Delivery: Save to Disc

3) Scan as usual, do Image Treatment and send

4) The document will appear in the My Documents folder as a PDF and will not be sent to Ariel.

5) Open Microsoft Outlook and email the PDF attachment to the borrowing library.

6) Delete the PDF from the My Documents folder when you are done.
