CDLC ILL eForm Tutorials: Lending

How to use CDLC's ILL eForm

Lending Using the ILLiad Addon

The Lending side of the ILLiad Addon helps to auto populate the eForm into a lending request. It is not 100% automated. You must first find the requesting library in ILLiad then copy and paste the entire eForm email into the 'Email Import' tab. Overall the add on should speed up the process & saves time. 

Please Note: You must still update the status of the request in the eForm system.
