For end-users:

The functionality of end-user initiated interlibrary loan requests has been disabled on the pre-request portal via Sabinet’s Reference Platform. This is as a result of the migration to WorldShare® Interlibrary Loan. Please contact your Interlibrary Loan Librarian for information on alternative ways of requesting material.
