New Tipasa ILL Service. Coming Soon!

Hello Islanders, 

The Mary and Jeff Bell Library is pleased to announce a change in the library’s interlibrary loan management service. Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is upgrading from the current interlibrary loan client management software suite (ILLiad) to a cloud based interlibrary loan management system (Tipasa).

On May 13th, interlibrary loans users will be able to set up their new interlibrary loan account through the Tipasa patron portal. ILL services will email ILL patrons the portal link on the day of the 13th. Once you access the portal, you will need to create your account using your current Island ID and password. Once your account is verified, you will then be able to continue placing interlibrary loan requests.

Unfortunately, any PDF’s available in your ILLiad account will be lost during the transition to the new management system. If you want to keep your digital copies, you will need to download and save them prior to May 12th.  

Contact the ILL office if you have any questions or need assistance, email or call 361-825-6557.
