What is it?

The ILLiad Web Circ module allows sites that use a remote desk for circulating ILL materials to access ILLiad circulation functions without having the ILLiad Client installed on circulation workstations.

 

How does it help?

With the Web Circulation, users can log into a restricted web view of ILLiad. In Transit, items can be marked received and returned. Other tasks available are Check Out, Check In, and Renew. Libraries can decide which functions to enable in the Customization Manager.

  1. In the ILLiad Customization Manager - go to Web Circulation

 

The actual Web Circulation module is installed by default with your other ILLiad webpages. To access it, simply navigate to your ILLiad webpages and add “/WebCirc/Logon.aspx” to the end of your base URL.

 

For example, self-hosted sites may look like:

https://illiad.library.edu/WebCirc/Logon.aspx

 

For OCLC hosted sites, the URL may look like:

http://libraryname.illiad.oclc.org/illiad/WebCirc/Logon.aspx

 

Web Circulation allows you to perform several processes, which can be turned on and off in the Customization Manager (under Web Interface | Web Circulation). These are explained in the table below.

 

Key

Explanation

WebCircEnableCheckOut

Will change the transaction status of the request to Checked Out to Customer

WebCircEnableCheckIn

Will change the transaction status of the request to Awaiting Return Label Printing.

WebCircEnableMarkInTransit

Will change the transaction status of the request to In Transit.

WebCircEnableRenewal

Process in ILLiad Web Circulation is very similar to the renewals that users can request themselves in the borrowing DLL.

WebCircEnableCirculationForBlockedUsers

Configures whether staff users can check out and renew for blocked users. If this value is set to false, a quick check out or renewal will cause the VerifyUserCleared status message to display.

 

Once this is ready to go, staff must be given access to Web Circulation from within the ILLiad Staff Manager. Logon to the ILLiad Staff Manager and, for each individual, be sure to select Web Circulation Access. (Alternatively, you could create a generic “Circulation” staff account that all staff use.)
