WorldCat and ILLiad Issues Resolved

This is a quick post to update the UM community on a systems issue we reported here last week. The linkage between WorldCat Local and our ILLiad system for interlibrary loan has been restored.

In other systems news, we've updated our catalog and proxy software so that recently enrolled students will now have online access to their patron account and our subscription databases.

Temporary Outage Between ILLiad and WorldCat Local

For those who use the WorldCat Local catalog we launched last year, you've no doubt appreciated the ability to initiate an interlibrary loan request without having to key in all of the information manually. Unfortunately, an upgrade performed on our ILLiad system on Friday has temporarily disabled this handy feature. We're working on this problem, and we hope to have it resolved within the next few days. In the meantime, here's all you need to know about the recent upgrade:

  • We’re still processing all incoming interlibrary loan requests. If you've previously bookmarked the ILLiad login page we now have a new address. To save time you may consider changing your bookmarks to
  • For the next few days, when clicking from WorldCat Local into the ILLiad system using the request item button (pictured above,) you will need to manually enter the citation information to complete your request.
  • You may contact Jason Cooper with any questions you may have regarding the ILLiad system during this brief transition.
As always, we look forward to assisting you with your interlibrary loan and other service requests.
