Why does my Custom Holdings Path for copies not auto-populate the lender string?

Applies to
  • WorldShare ILL
  • Tipasa 

WorldShare ILL systems cannot select lenders on copy requests. This is due to the fact that holdings on specific articles are not necessarily reflected in OCLC knowledge base holdings.

You can select lenders manually by following these steps:

  1. Go to the holdings view page of your request.
  2. Optionally select a custom holdings path.
  3. Select the desired lenders by clicking "Yes" in the "Supplier" column. This fills your Lender String.
  4. Update or create your request using the blue Update Request button on the right side of the now-filled lender string.
