Earth Day - UMC Library now delivers ILL articles electronically
UMC Library has made the switch to delivering requested InterLibrary Loan articles electronically. Prior to this we had printed the artilces off and held them for pickup. We are now converting them to .pdf format and delivering them electronically.
You no longer need to come to the library to pickup articles you have requested just click the link and download.
It is paperless -- Good for the environment.
We are using software which uploads the articles as .pdf documents to a secure server and sends you an email with a link to download the artilce. This gets around problems with some email systems and large documents. The system also scans the document for viruses before downloading it. .pdf documents are a growing source for viruses.
Faster and more secure.
