A new and completely revised version of the Minitex Interlibrary Loan (ILL) Policy Database is now available via the Minitex website. This updated service allows our website visitors to find ILL staff contact information, format-specific lending policies, and more for libraries of all types in Minnesota, North Dakota, and South Dakota—all within a reimagined and streamlined user interface. Users can browse all available libraries or filter the full collection by library name, location code, and/or library type.
ILL staff at libraries are able to enter, update, and maintain their own policy data. A recording of the training session is available on the Recorded Events section of the Minitex website. There is also still time to register for the second offering of the training session:
If you want to edit or enter new ILL policy data for your organization, but cannot attend the training session, there is a written how-to guide available as well.
As a reminder, all library staff who plan to edit the policy information for their library must create a MyMinitex account if they do not already have one. When creating a new account, select “Edit my organization's ILL Policy Database information” in the “Service Access” section of the form so we can configure the account appropriately.
Staff members who already have a MyMinitex account and want access to edit their library’s policy information should submit a helpdesk ticket requesting this addition to their account services.
If your library does not have a record created yet in the database, please submit a helpdesk ticket and request that we set it up for you to get started.
