How do I update my Supplier status for ILL in the OCLC Policies Directory?

Symptom
  • Site needs to adjust supplier status before or after a break or an emergency
Applies to
  • ILLiad 
  • Tipasa
  • WorldShare ILL
Resolution
  1.  Log on to the OCLC Policies Directory.
  2.  Go to the Profile tab.
  3.  If the field labeled OCLC Supplier is set to Yes, then click Edit.
  4.  The Edit Profile window displays. Select No.
  5.  Click Save.

This action immediately changes the site to Non-Supplier.  It will remain set to Non-Supplier until logging in again to ILL Policies and changing the OCLC Supplier back to Yes and saving the change.

Sometimes institutions like to schedule the Non-Supplier status.  To do this:

  1.  Go to the Schedule tab. 
  2.  In the Closures section, go to the right side of the screen and click Add.
  3.  Give the closure a name. For example: Hurricane Florence.
  4.  Select a Type in the drop-down menu. For example: Calamity.
  5.  Enter the Start and End Dates.  For example: if the Start date is 6/13/2020, then the Non-Supplier status begins at Midnight on that date.  If the end date is 9/13/2020, then that is when the change ends and the status reverts back to Supplier. 
  6. In the field labeled OCLC Supplier, select No. This will be the status during the time of the closure.  When the closure ends, the status reverts back to Supplier.
  7. Add Notes if necessary.
  8. Click Save.
