UC Library is upgrading to a new Interloan system in December 2018

UC Library will be upgrading to a new Interloan system in December 2018 - WorldShare ILL via Tipasa.

What will change?

The account you use to request and manage your Interloans will be different.
It will be more user-friendly, while still enabling you to do the things you do now, such as downloading interloaned PDFs, requesting renewals and monitoring the progress of your requests.
We aim for this transition to be as smooth as possible, and the services we provide will remain the same.
Any outstanding requests you have during the transition period will be actioned in the old system, alongside any new requests you make in Tipasa.

Why is the Library upgrading its Interloan system?

The current system, VDX zPortal, has reached its end of life, and is no longer supported by its provider. All New Zealand libraries are also moving to WorldShare ILL to share interloans.

How will I access the Interloans service from 4th December?

The current intention for the new system is 4th December, but should this change we’ll send another update. When this happens, you will be automatically redirected to the new request form. You will continue to be able to access your previous Interloans requests in the current system, VDX zPortal, for at least 2019.

More information will be provided in due course, but do contact us (see details below) if you have any questions or concerns.
