EFTS Tip of the Week

Sunday, October 19th, 2014

Did you know that EFTS can be used for charges other than Docline billing? You may want to collect fees for an overdue book or make payment for a subscription or any other fee based activity. As long as both libraries are in agreement that billing will be made via EFTS, you can enter data via the BUILD AN ONLINE TRANSACTION FILE and secure payment. Call our office for details… 866-561-5045.

NLM Discontinuing Ariel Delivery: Effective 10/1/2014

Friday, September 26th, 2014

This is a reminder that effective October 1, 2014 the National Library of Medicine (NLM) will discontinue use of Ariel for delivery of interlibrary loan documents due to the diminished number of libraries using Ariel and the increasing difficulty troubleshooting Ariel transmittals.   We recommend email post-to-web (PDF) as stated in our FAQ about NLM’s ILL Delivery methods: http://www.nlm.nih.gov/services/doc_ill_nlm_pref_deliv.html

NLM will continue to deliver interlibrary loan documents by the following methods:

  • Email (PDF)
  • Post-to-Web (PDF)
  • Odyssey
  • Fax
  • Mail

If your library participates in DOCLINE, please select a new NLM Delivery Method in the Borrowing Preferences section of the DOCLINE Options page of your DOCLINE institution record. The DOCLINE FAQ on how to do so is here: http://www.nlm.nih.gov/services/doc_routing_borrow.html.

If you currently receive ILL delivery from NLM via Ariel and you are not a DOCLINE participant, please let us know your new preferred delivery method, selected from the options above. If you have any questions or wish to update us on your delivery preference, you can contact us by email at custserv@nlm.nih.gov<mailto:custserv@nlm.nih.gov>, call our ILL staff, Lalitha Kutty or Mary Wassum, at 301-496-5511, or use our webform: https://docline.gov/docline/help/contact_nlm/ill_web_form.cfm.

EFTS Tip of the Week

Monday, August 11th, 2014

There is a way to avoid having to pay individual invoices! How, you may ask? It is as easy as reviewing your routing tables. Carefully populate your routing tables, selecting FREE or RECIPRICAL lenders in your first cells. If there are no FREE sources, then proceed to route requests to other EFTS member institutions! You may never see an invoice again!

EFTS Tip of the Week

Monday, August 4th, 2014

For those libraries who have not already done so, it would behoove you to update your routing tables to include EFTS libraries in the first cells to insure timeliness and ease of billing in loan fulfillment. Libraries not using these services should be relegated to lower tables as they represent a decrease in efficiency in filling ILL requests.

Other helpful hints would include:

• Log into your EFTS account on a regular basis and check your balance and account activity.

• Review your Member Profile information at least annually.

• Include your LIBID on all correspondence and checks submitted to EFTS.
