About Interdocs

Interdocs is an intranet application used by registered clients/ patrons to request and track requested journal articles, books, multimedia, research or other inter-library loan requests from and to your library, and track its fulfillment status.
Interdocs is a specialised document delivery system developed by Prosentient Systems to provide the full workflow management of your document delivery service, including journals, books and other resources.

It has a client submission interface, self registration and integration with Koha and our Interlibrary loans services.

How does it work?

  • When a request is made for an item not held by the library, the workflow is handled by the document delivery module.
  • If the library has an inter-library loans agreement with another library or libraries, the document delivery module is used to raise, receive, process, track and report on Inter-library loan requests.
  • It also provides the functionality for the librarian to process the request. This includes the ability to recognise and manage clients, review and process their requests, create and manage inter-library loans suppliers, review and process requests from other libraries and generate management reports and statistics.

Interdocs integrates closely with our inter-library loan networks: GratisNet, GLASS, QShare, LILLI, q-LILLI, Tranzinfo and ALIES. Requests can also be placed thorugh other inter-library loan networks.

When Interdocs and Interloans are used together, patrons are are presented with a unified catalogue of journal holdings from participating libraries.

Additionally, if Interdocs is being used in conjunction with the Koha LMS, single sign-on is supported through Koha and book loans can be tracked through Koha's circulation system.

Case Studies

Koha, Interdocs and GratisNet in Northern Territory Health

The Northern Territory’s Health Library Network signed up for Prosentient System’s document delivery system and were impressed with the after sales service.  “We found Edmund to be very good to work with” explained Resources Management Librarian, Ruby Lindberg.  “No matter how many times we rang he was always patient and helpful.  After sales service and support is very important to us because we don’t have the technical in-house knowledge of the applications to do it ourselves”.  Their good experience with Interdocs soon led the library to join GratisNet, and then to take up the hosted Koha Library Management System.

DSpace: Australian Open Access Support Group

In this case study published by the Australian Open Access Support Group, Gemma Siemensma, Library Manager at Ballarat Health Services, describes the thinking and processes behind the introduction of their DSpace repository

Koha and DSpace in the NSW Parliamentary Library

When the Parliamentary Library of New South Wales began using Koha as its Library Management system and DSpace as its digital repository, the staff didn't do so to make a political statement about the viability of open source software. “This was just the software that fulfilled our requirements,” said Deborah Brown, Parliament’s chief librarian.

While having a physical collection, NSW Parliament library's lifeblood is digitized news media. Through their parliamentary copyright exemption they reproduce and store dozens of articles each day for the use of the Members of Parliament (and their staff) who make up their user base.
