Delivery

September 9th 2020

I know many of you are anxious for ILL to resume (as am I) but it is dependent on resumption of delivery service. Delivery is contracted and handled by librarylinknj.org.  Please direct all your delivery questions to them.   I  have nothing to do with delivery and do not have any special insight into what librarylink is planning.   Thanks. Casey Confoy JerseyCat – NJSL cconfoy@PROTECTED 609-278-2640  x114 ...Continue Reading

ILL update and reminder

August 19th 2020

We have many new libraries added to this list, so I am reposting the latest on ILL service.   LibraryLink won’t be resuming deliveries until after Labor Day (with no firm date as of now), but limited ILL service is available from out of state libraries.  To access this option use the Blank Request form and fill out whatever bibliographic information you have for the desired item.  The lender list should say /njac,30/. If the list is blank, enter /njac,30. / Reminder: borrowing libraries must pay ret ...Continue Reading

Reopening procedures/suggestions

June 17th 2020

With curbside pickup libraries will be getting interlibrary loan items returned to them.   LibraryLink has not given any date for resuming deliveries, but sometime after Labor day is a fair guess.   So, if you have items to go back to other libraries, you can just hold on to them until delivery is back.   Alternatively, you can return items via media mail, if you have the resources to do so.   Out of state interlibrary loan items should be returned by mail, as always.   Thanks. Casey Confoy Jer ...Continue Reading

National Emergency Library - update

March 31st 2020

Based upon information from Auto-Graphics, I requested that Casey Confoy notify JerseyCat libraries that they could have access to the internet archives’ materials. I have since learned from further reading that this open access is opposed by a number of groups, primarily the Authors Guild, as materials still under copyright are being made freely available. Please read the link below from NPR before deciding to post the internet archives’ link to your website.    https://www.npr.org/2020/03/30/823797545/autho ...Continue Reading

National Emergency Library

March 30th 2020

Auto-Graphics has sent us information on the National Emergency Library. If you think this will be helpful to your patrons you may want to link to it.   If you want the link to appear on your JerseyCat site, you can contact Auto-Graphics (as below).   My own feeling is that creating your own link on your library’s home page may be a better choice. Most users won’t be looking at JerseyCat as they are aware that Ill’s are not available. Linking to your library’s main page will ensure maximum visibility.   ...Continue Reading

JerseyCat update 3.19

March 19th 2020

Most libraries have sources for journal and magazine articles. But if these sources are affected by shutdowns, be aware that JerseyCat can be used for requesting copies.   There are still a fair number of out of state OCLC libraries who are functioning and can supply electronic / downloadable copies.   Use the blank request form if you want to do this.   Be aware that many libraries charge $10 for out of state copies and $12 for copies from medical libraries. Entering the applicable amount in the maxcos ...Continue Reading

latest updates

March 16th 2020

LibraryLinkNJ has suspended all deliveries effective tomorrow, March 17. Please see librarylinknj.org for further information.   Libraries that are closing should use their vacation settings to reflect that. Libraries that remain open can still receive ILLs from out of state libraries (those that remain open) by mail.   I have contacted, or will soon contact libraries who had scheduled trainings to notify them that all have been postponed. ...Continue Reading
