Rapido

Search suggestions:

What if users could borrow a title like they order a meal?

Your end-users shouldn't have to navigate three different interfaces to find where to place an ILL request. With Rapido, your library applies the online shopping model to interlibrary loans and allows patrons to place requests right from within the discovery interface.

Rapido

Patrons access any material on the discovery interface

Patrons discover and access any title on one interface, regardless of where it comes from

Expand

Your users:

  • Request items from within the discovery interface  
  • See the internal and external resources as part of the same collection
  • Decide which of the requesting options has the best delivery time and loan duration 
  • Track the delivery status until the title is in their hands

 

 

 

Read Less

Libraries fulfill 9/10 requests in under 24 hours

Deliver any title in record time with peer relationships you can count on

Expand

With Rapido, libraries: 

  • Leverage millions of items shared amongst the community
  • Enjoy limitless resource access with an all-inclusive annual subscription model
  • Join groups (or “pods”) of libraries that have agreed upon loan terms
  • Choose which titles from the collections to share with which group
  • Work with other resource-sharing systems or networks from within the Rapido interface

Check out the latest resource sharing community meeting.

Staff manage all the requests in one place

Staff process all the lending and borrowing requests in the same interface. They get more done, with less effort.

Expand

For library staff, Rapido:

  • Integrates with the ILS (integrated library system)
  • Prepopulates request details and avoids having to search for a complete citation  
  • Eliminates copying and pasting between different systems  
  • Determines the best lender based on availability
  • Balances loads between libraries and ensures fair request distribution
