Our library resource sharing system facilitates the inter-connectivity of consortia, providing you
the ability to simultaneously interface with multiple ILS and ILL systems.
Tailor-made for both libraries and patrons
With flexible setup options and robust coverage/customization choices, whole states can participate and every library can tailor their settings to their own personal needs. No collection is too big or too small.
& expanded collections
Get results from hundreds of libraries in one search interface, with no limits on the number of lenders per request. (As a result, your chances of fulfilling a request are much higher!) Plus, our innovative gallery view features more unique titles and more cover art on the screen, making your search more far-reaching and efficient.
& smart workflows
Automated features like automatic request deflection, a smart Lender List Build, and NCIP ILS integration save your staff valuable time. At the same time, highly customizable search and request defaults let every library work with their own favorite settings and layouts.
SHAREit supports SIP2 and NCIP to enable remote patron authentication to a local ILS patron file. Using CILL, patrons may initiate resource sharing requests from any ILS system.
Staff can initiate multiple numbers of request for the same title through one simple step, which allows libraries to support services such as book clubs and study groups with minimal staff involvement.
Flexible request handling for
items held in home library
Staff can block requests for locally-held titles, redirect to the local catalog to place a hold, and place a hold directly in the
local catalog (NCIP.)
Circulation – Interlibrary Loan Link (CILL)
Libraries can pair Auto-Graphics products together to simplify workflows. For example, SHAREit ILL can be embedded into VERSO ILS in a relationship called Circulation-Interlibrary Loan Link (CILL). Thus, staff and patrons can search, place, and process requests all in a single interface.
Flexibility in lender lists
& load balancing
Multiple levels of lender lists can be used to direct requests to preferred and network lenders, with eight load-leveling options for distributing requests.
Clean, intuitive discovery interface
Unique clustered display groups multiple formats under appealing jacket art, making it easy for the user to find and request the title and format they want. In addition, customizable interfaces make it easy to design home pages, forms and more specific to your library’s brand.
