Participation in the EFTS System is up to 57 members, or 37.5% of the DOCLINE Libraries in our Region.

The Electronic Fund Transfer System (EFTS), is a transaction-based electronic billing system for interlibrary-loan (ILL) and document delivery.

EFTS eliminates the need to create invoices and write checks for re-imbursement for interlibrary loans and document delivery between participants. Among the advantages are monthly detailed transaction based reports, the ability to handle variable charges and the ability to handle non-DOCLINE transactions.

    I find EFTS a huge timesaver for managing my charges for interlibrary loans even with using mostly Freeshare sources. Are the non-EFTS libraries in our region “Freeshare” only institutions? I only bill libraries that bill me, so I generally only submit 2 or 3 charges a year, but it is easy to do the billing. I send myself a form I pull from EFTS to invoice my library to replenish my deposit account about three times a year. It is easy and works great for my hospital’s accounting department.

  2. Heidi Sue Adams Says:

    I agree with Kathy. EFTS has been an incredible timesaver. We’re a FREESHARE library, so we don’t charge other libraries, however, previous to EFTS I had to process each individual invoice we received from other libraries. Now, with EFTS, I have processed three whole invoices in the last fiscal year! Three! And it used to be at least 30. So, EFTS is not only for those libraries who charge; it saves time for any library whether just billing, just paying, or both.
