As we prepare for the final stages of migrating the New 19 libraries from LINC and MAGIC into SWAN, some considerations for ILL processing are recommended. 

LINC and MAGIC libraries should have suspended making or filling ILL requests to/from SWAN libraries until after migration. This decision was made due to the fact that any items in LINC or MAGIC that have duplicate barcodes with our SWAN items will not migrate. Those items will be seen as errors and prevented from data load.  For this reason, SWAN libraries should not fill requests from LINC and MAGIC libraries until migration is complete.

Intralibrary and Interlibrary Loan training material is available on the Training Classes page in the support site. There are upcoming workshops on March 29th and April 10th. See details on the recommendation for Processing ILL requests during migration memo.  We apologize that this information was not widely shared outside of our training class. If you have any questions, please submit a support ticket and we will help clarify this migration period recommendation.
