Books coming from ODL

Everyone trained is doing awesome. I thought I’d point out a peculiarity to the items you request that ODL owns. These items will be in your View/Resubmit Cancelled Requests button on your Illiad menu page. First ignore the word re-submit . These items will be sent to you by ODL, or there will be a note telling you why we can’t fill an item, or that we placed a hold on an item. You can also check your holds in your ODL library account, View and Renew (not Illiad account).

If you click on one of the transaction numbers and scroll down to the notes field you will see we own the title and we will put in a shipped date. You will NOT get an email, the book will just be shipped from ODL.

You’ll probably receive many books from us over the long haul. We try to purchase new titles that aren’t owned instate, and any title on OCLC with an Oklahoma Department of Libraries holding symbol will come from us.

Keep ordering those books and thanks for all the cooperation as we transistion off OLTN.

Illiad training continues…

Just a little update, so far 21 public libraries, 1 institution and 1 academic library have been trained to use Illiad/WorldCat for their Interlibrary Loan. We’ve already received requests from some of these libraries, and hope all of you try it out once you’re trained. Lots of good reading out there for your patrons to get this summer. Also we can borrow many DVDs and audio books for them as well.

Welcome new OK Illiad libraries!

Congratulations! You’ve now been trained on using OK Illiad for your interlibrary loan. In case you forget any of the steps we’ve added  online tutorials for you.  The  links to them are located on the right side of this page and will always be available. For your patrons to search WorldCat please direct them to and they can view all the records in WorldCat. They will need to fill out a form for you to request the item. We have created forms for you to duplicate and give to your patrons. The link to the form page is also located on the right. Only you will be able to login and place the request online, but they can view a user friendly version of WorldCat at
