Re: ILL & Licensing questions

To answer your question no.1;

We have added a note in our holdings record (we have Innopac online
system) with "YES ILL" or "NO ILL"  I pass this information on to our
Serials Manager when the license is set up & we actually have access - she
sets up a bib & holdings record with this info.  Makes it easy for our ILL
students to know whether they can lend articles or not.
