Simplify your billing with Fee Management

Save both time and money: Use the Fee Management (IFM) feature of OCLC WorldShare Interlibrary Loan to you reconcile resource sharing charges and payments through your monthly OCLC invoice. You'll eliminate invoices and check writing for individual transactions, and on average save more than $45 (U.S.) on each request.

How it works

Just click the IFM checkbox and enter your MAXCOST on the WorldShare Interlibrary Loan workform and you're using Fee Management. Your monthly OCLC invoice will include additional line items:

  • IFM Library to Library Borrowing Debit
    Charges your library incurred for borrowing items
  • IFM Library to Library Lending Credit
    Credits your library receives for supplying items

Review your detailed report on OCLC Usage Statistics. Two reports (borrower and lender) provide a request-by-request breakdown of Fee Management library-to-library debits and credits. The report is arranged alphabetically by institution.

Future enhancements to WorldShare Interlibrary Loan will enable you to use IFM to pay for materials from content providers in addition to lending libraries. Register for email updates through the OCLC-SHARING-L discussion list.
