Can we change where my library appears on the System-Wide Lender List or Preferred Lender List?

[Lender Lists & ERTI Smart-build] The default System Wide Lender List was created based on recommended guidelines, to best ensure that ILL requests are evenly distributed to lenders across the Illume system. In general, they are organized from smallest to largest libraries in order to disperse requests across all libraries in the BCUC consortia. Libraries with smaller collections are given the opportunity to lend items while libraries serving larger communities continue to receive significant request numbers, due to larger collection availability, without being overwhelmed.

The current System-wide list can be found (but not edited) under Staff Dashboard > ILL Admin > Participant Record > System Wide and it's also displayed below.

Libraries also can have a Preferred Lender List that over-rides the default consortial System-Wide Lender list.

  • Locate your current Preferred Lender List under Staff Dashboard > ILL Admin > Preferred Lender List.
  • Public Library Preferred Lender Lists were created by Public Libraries Branch in consultation, and may also be specific to other consortia such as InterLINK. These should not be edited as they are organized to disperse requests as evenly as possible. Have questions about your placement on the Preferred Lender List? Contact Public Libraries Branch at LLB@gov.bc.ca.
  • Post-secondaries can set-up their Preferred Lender List and we recommend these lists based on geography and size: https://illumebc.ca/guides/preferred-lender-lists
