NHAIS ILL System Self Guided Training

To participate in the NHAIS Interlibrary Loan System each library must (1) be profiled as a participant and (2) have ILL staff trained in the use of the system. Both of these must be done before ILL login credentials will be issued for a library.

To certify that your staff has been trained complete the NHAIS Interlibrary Loan System Self Guided Training formAdobe Acrobate indicating when each required video was viewed, have it signed by the library director, and return the original to NHAIS Services. Note: Separate staff should complete separate forms if one person doesn't view all the required training.

There are 3 sets of videos for self-guided training which have been put into playlists on the NHAIS YouTube channel:

Required ILL Training Videos (total of approximately 2.25 hours)

Optional ILL Training Videos (total of approximately 1 hour)

Required Holdings Maintenance Videos for Union Catalog Participants (total of approximately 30 minutes)

Library Staff ILL Training Videos

These are the same videos that are included in the self-guided training playlists, but are linked below individually so you can view any topics that you need a refresher on.
