Phased implementation of BLDSS is currently underway and approximately 35% of all requests from ARTEmail and ARTWeb customers are now being processed via the new service. Due to technical issues full deployment of BLDSS is now scheduled to be completed by the end of August. For more information please us this link.
Congratulations to Andrew Strike (University of East Anglia) on being selected as the FIL sponsored delegate at Interlend 2012!
It was very close decision and FIL would like to thank the other candidates for their applications.
Copac, the National, Academic and Specialist Library Catalogue, has an updated and refreshed new look. This is the first stage of a major redevelopment and work will continue, eg. to improve mobile support.
Copac exposes rare and unique research material by bringing together the catalogues of over 70 major UK and Irish libraries. In a single search you can discover the holdings of the UK’s national libraries (including the British Library), many University libraries, and specialist research libraries.
While the excitement is building to the interlending event of the year, Interlend 2012, the FIL Committee is already starting plans towards the 2013 conference. As always we welcome membership input and recommendations for suitable locations.
We would be very grateful if you could spare a minute of your time to answer the following questions, which will be used by the FIL Committee in the 2013 conference planning.
Presentations from the Welsh FIL Interlending event, 'Are We There Yet? Document Delivery in Wales' that took place on the 9th May 2012 at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, are now available to view.
The event was sponsored by CILIP Wales with support from the Kathleen Cooks Fund.
