Looking up Lending articles in ILLiad

Sarah noticed something peculiar today, so this brought me to set down in writing the hierarchy of where to look to see if we can send an article full text.

1) Check the Knowledge Base. To do this, use the Collections Tab. If links appear and say YES…click the link to get to the PDF file.

If the KB says NO….

2) Check the Innovative Addon and check the “About Resourse” tab for the title. If it says ILL permitted, proceed to the Citation Linker tab to see if we have the article in full text.
3) If the answer to all is NO…we need to see if we have it in print and get it pulled from the stacks.

Changing and html link to a PDF

You are looking for an item for a patron and instead of being able to be saved as a PDF, the only option is HTML. This means that we have the full text, but it wasn’t scanned from the original. Let’s say that we own the item and want to post it for our patron. *** Remember: Matt used to do this. ***

Save the item as an HTM or HTML document. Copy the original text into a WORD document and SAVE it as a PDF. Could it be easier? No…then…Post it to the server through Filezilla and send the email to the patron. Have fun!
