How do I stop my library from getting International Requests?

  • The library does not want to lend items internationally

  • WorldShare ILL
  • Tipasa
  • ILLiad

In the Policies Directory setting the “International Lender” to None is just informational. It is not a deflection policy. 

You can have the “International Lender” listed as None and trust that most libraries from overseas will check before sending you a request.

  1. Log in to the Policies Directory.
  2. Go to the Policies tab.
  3. Edit the Loan and/or Copies policies.
  4. Under Borrowers>Locations, select Include select your country (for example United States) as the Country. You will be listed as None in the International Lender section of the Policies Directory.
