Cover pages

Learn how to configure and use cover pages for document delivery in Relais ILL.

Overview

At the time a document is delivered by any of the Relais delivery applications a cover page is created as part of the process. The way the cover page is added to the document or delivered is dependent on the delivery method.

  • Delivery FTP (for delivery to Odyssey and Ariel) - the cover page is merged with the document
  • Delivery Email (for post to web and attachments) - the cover page can be merged with the document or sent as a separate attachment
  • Delivery Local (for printing) - the cover page is merged with the document

The cover page includes:

  • The requester's address
  • Bibliographic information and other information and instructions required to fill the request
  • Notes
  • If turned on - an invoice message
  • Header 
  • Footer 
  • Two messages 

Most of the information on the cover page is generated from the request. The header, footer and two messages on the cover page can be configured for each request type.
