Share with any library

Create resource sharing groups from any library you work with—no matter their library system. Link libraries together through BLUEcloud ILL or a standard NCIP connection to start borrowing and loaning materials.

Remove the guesswork

When you process a request in BLUEcloud ILL, you will automatically see which libraries have the item available. Staff will be able to choose the fulfilling site, and let BLUEcloud ILL do the rest. The item passes seamlessly through both libraries, and you can check the request status at any time.

Make ILL simple for your users

Even if you don’t have an item in your collections, users see the title in the catalog. When they pull up the request form, BLUEcloud ILL automatically populates the publication information. No scouring the catalog for a request form, and no Googling the ISBN—users just add their need-by date and submit.
