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.
