Joyner ILLiad Status Explanations

This page explains the ILLiad 'status' of your request. If you have questions, please contact us.

ILL Borrowing: Explanation of ILLiad Status

  • Awaiting ALA Processing - This item was not found in libraries that use the computerized request system we use, so we are having to email, fax, or call the library to request it.
  • Awaiting Conditional Processing – This status means one of three things. 1) A potential lending library has replied that it might be able to supply if more information can be supplied by the ILL staff (cost, format, citation clarification, etc.). 2) A potential lender cannot supply but is giving the ILL staff some helpful information on how to obtain from another lender. 3) A potential lender has refused to provide the material and is explaining why. In all three cases, the ILL staff will review your request and will attempt other potential lenders if possible.
  • Awaiting Copyright Clearance - The request is awaiting review to determine if any copyright fees need to be paid by the library. Once determined, the request will be sent out to libraries to fulfill.
  • Awaiting Customer Contact - The requested item has arrived and is being processed by the ILL staff. An email will be sent shortly letting you know that the item is available to pick up (or is being shipped to you).
  • Awaiting Denied Renewal Processing – The lending library has refused the renewal request. An email will be sent shortly letting you know the due date.
  • Awaiting Direct Request Sending – ILLiad is using the ISBN, ISSN, or OCLC number you provided in your request to send it to other libraries without ILL staff needing to handle it. ILLiad sends requests to the outside network every 10 minutes.
  • Awaiting Extensive Searching – We have not found a library yet through our normal means that is able and willing to provide the requested item. We are continuing to look, though. If you no longer need this material, please let us know.
  • Awaiting NB Review – This request matches some of the criteria for our purchase-on-demand service. A librarian will review it to determine if the library should purchase a copy rather than borrowing it.
  • Awaiting NB Processing – This request has been identified as meeting the criteria for our purchase-on-demand service. A librarian is purchasing it to add to the library's collection once you have finished reading it.
  • Awaiting OCLC Sending - The ILLiad system is about to send your request to outside libraries through the OCLC resource sharing network.
  • Awaiting Odyssey Processing - The requested item has arrived through the Odyssey electronic delivery system or we are preparing to scan the requested article from a print or microform edition for you. Either the ILLiad system will automatically notify you by email of the availability of the online PDF, or we will manually notify you by email.
  • Awaiting Post Receipt Processing - The requested item has arrived and is being processed by the ILL staff. You will be notified by email shortly that it is available.
  • Awaiting Purchase – The library has decided to purchase the item you requested either because we could not find it in a library willing to lend it or because we decided that it would be a good addition to our collection.
  • Awaiting RAPID Local Sending - We have identified that Joyner Library does not have the article you requested in our collections. We are sending your request to the RAPID system to fulfill.
  • Awaiting RAPID Request Sending - The automated RAPID system is about to send your request to libraries to be filled. Libraries that participate in RAPID often fulfill a request within 24 hours.
  • Awaiting RAPID Local Request Processing - The automated RAPID system has identified that Joyner Library might have your requested article in our electronic, print, or microform collections. We will check to see if we do and let you know. If we don't have it, we will send your request to other libraries to fill.

You should have received an email. Call the ILL staff with any questions.
  • Copyright Over 5 Review - U.S. Copyright compliance guidelines limit the number of copies that the library can receive.
