Integration of Off-Site Repository Software with the Library Catalog and Interlibrary Loan
MetadataShow full metadata
In September 2017, Texas State University opened the Archives and Research Center (ARC). It is a 14,000 square-foot, off-site, state-of-the-art facility that will preserve decades of university treasures and library resources, collections, and research materials. The University Libraries selected Caiasoft from CAIA Software & Solutions as the repository management software for the facility. University Libraries staff constructed scripts to integrate Caiasoft with our Integrated Library System, Sierra, and our Inter-Library Loan system, ILLiad. This allows patrons to request materials from the ARC through the catalog, and allows document delivery and inter-library loan article requests to be fulfilled electronically from the facility using Odyssey. This poster explains how the integration was set up and diagrams the workflows involved.
