How to use LiNX

LiNX is Live!

LiNX, previously known as CaDiLaC and the eForm, is now active.

Best Practices

  • LiNX is intended for CDLC libraries to use when access to OCLC or ILLiad is not an option for either the borrower and/or the lender.
  • LiNX may only be sent to one library at a time.
  • There is no charge to use LiNX.
  • It is ideal to update your Library Profile in the ILL Directory regularly.
  • eBooks are not lendable.
  • Send ILL items with a copy of paperwork with clear due date and any special instructions (in library use only, no renewals, etc.)
  • Keep clear records of ILL items loaned and borrowed.
  • LiNX is free and libraries should not fine one another for overdue items. However charging for a replacement copy once the book is lost or damaged is allowed. The lending library is responsible for collecting money from the borrowing library.
