Interlibrary Loan: New Look & Feel

Armacost Library will go-live with a new interlibrary loan (ILL) system, Tipasa, on Friday, January 15, 2021. If you have any electronic copies of articles waiting to download, or other information from your account you'd like to record, please do so by then. You may want to save information on prior requests; navigate to ILLiad login and View Requests. 

*Note that unfilled requests will migrate to Tipasa, so there is no need to resubmit.

After Friday, January 15th, all links to interlibrary loan (ILL) will connect you to the new system, Tipasa.

Tipasa will look a bit different from ILLiad, our current system (both hosted by OCLC). The patron interface is simplified and enables more integration between library accounts. You will be able to view borrowed items and due dates in one account (Alma). First time requesters will no longer be required to fill out a registration form as Tipasa integrates with the university-wide single-sign on directory. 

For library staff, the new cloud-based system, enables more flexibility in processes and workflows.

If you have questions, please contact your librarian.
