And that’s it! These simple steps open up a whole new world of books for your patrons to enjoy!
Here are some helpful tips to know and share with your patrons:
1. There are several types of materials that are generally not filled through OCLC. These include: genealogy/archival materials, whole issues of journals or periodicals, current and popular bestsellers, and reference materials.
2. Most of the time articles are sent to us in PDF format. Be sure to ask your patron when they are requesting articles if they would accept it in electronic format!
3. Including the ISBN or OCLC number really helps make sure that I can request the right title for your patron. If neither of these is available, try to provide as much information as possible. Also, if there are multiple editions of a title, ask your patron if they need a certain edition or if any edition would be okay.
