InstantILL is coming soon. See our blog for a preview of what to expect.
InstantILL: Form filled, document delivered InstantILLy
We’ve heard from patrons and librarians that they want ILL to be faster, friendlier, cheaper and to advance Open Access. In response, we’re planning a next generation ILL form, InstantILL, that can:
Instantly fill forms, cutting your fields down to just one
Instantly deliver content from subscriptions and with Open Access
Instantly submit requests, with correct metadata, to your existing ILL system
Instantly lighten the load on staff by pre-checking requests against your subscriptions and for Open Access availability
Instantly start testing and delivering content without lengthy set-up processes
Instantly power a fairer, more open publishing system and cheaper ILL system by working with authors to share their research for free
Expect many of InstantILL's features to be provided as free, Open Source, hosted software provided by a library-aligned non-profit. To sustain the work we'll build additional layers of optional paid for features.
