Document Delivery overview
The Document Delivery features allows your library to fulfill requests from patrons with items from your own collection, as indicated by your holdings in WorldCat. When Document Delivery is enabled, the Document Delivery category appears in the left navigation and allows you to process requests that can be fulfilled by items held by your library. You can also configure your automations to route requests for items your library holds to the Document Delivery queues. Document Delivery can also be used with the Advanced Lending queues.
