New automatic feature activated for ILL borrowing service


A new feature is now activated that facilitates submitting interlibrary loan (ILL) borrowing requests through the Colombo Interlibrary Loan system.

Both the McGill WorldCat catalogue and the OpenURL Resolver (i.e. Find Full Text service) offer McGill users the Request item through interlibrary loan option which connects users to the Colombo ILL system.

After clicking on the McGill login link, users will authenticate with McGill credentials for Colombo as usual.

The bibliographic elements (title, author, etc) will automatically transfer into the Colombo ILL system and populate the ILL request form.

This seamless transfer saves your time because you no longer have to copy/paste or type bibliographic elements from your searches into the Colombo ILL system.

If you have any questions or wish to provide feedback, please contact the ILL service at colombo [dot] library [at] mcgill [dot] ca.
