On November 9, Internet Archive participated in a webinar hosted by OCLC that showed librarians how to request articles from our library using OCLC tools.
How do I request articles from the Internet Archive?
- To learn how, watch the recording—starting at timestamp 12:25 minutes—and view slides 21- 30 (PDF).
- Create/update your custom holdings to include IAILL in the group you use for copy requesting.
- If you have Tipasa, add IAILL to your group of Proven Senders.
- If you have ILLiad, make IAILL an Odyssey Trusted Sender.
- If Internet Archive indicates that they own the year/volume you need, you can simply add IAILL to your lender string.
- From the Holdings page, filter to the article date you need, select the custom holdings path including IAILL, and click go to populate the lender string.
- Have questions about how to set up your custom holdings groups and paths? Please contact OCLC Support.
