Borrowers and lenders may now preview uploaded documents once before sharing the document link with a borrowing library or patron.
Lenders may preview an uploaded document before sending a document to the borrowing library.
Borrowers may preview a document once before sending the document link to their requesting patron. Patrons may still view each document five times before it is deleted from Article Exchange.
Book straps can be customized to include elements such as a library logo, patron data and a note. This customization is set up in OCLC Service Configuration.
END OF SUPPORT FOR INTERNET EXPLORER VERSION 8
With this release, WorldShare ILL no longer supports Internet Explorer 8. This change is in line with Microsoft's plan to end support for Windows XP on April 8, 2014. The service may continue to work with IE 8; however, over time users will likely experience degradation in functionality. This decision was made for several reasons:
If your institution plans to continue unsupported use of Windows XP after April 8, 2014 we highly recommend that you install either Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome for an improved experience with WorldShare ILL.
