Because 50% of the stock on P2 is now restricted to consortia libraries, material from these libraries cannot be used to fulfil ILL requests via P2.
To remedy this, PLS’ James Kemperman has set up functionality in Enterprise and Staff Web (Symphony) to allow non-consortia libraries to search and place holds on materials held by consortia libraries.
PLS staff will be in touch in the next couple of weeks to provide non-consortia libraries with logins and instructions to place requests.
Unley (a non-consortia library) has been trialling this over the past few weeks with much success. Port Augusta (another non-consortia library) has also used this process over the past few days and has already received some items in their black boxes – excellent results.
