(message from RLG)
Please use the address in
the RLG Information
Center. It is better not to direct it to a particular person,
since someone could be away and not get the e-mail.
The RLG Information Center
is staffed from 6 am - 5 pm Monday - Friday (US Pacific Time). Outside
those hours, you can call 650-691-2333 and leave a message. Someone
will be paged, and will try to verify if the system is up. You should
try to make sure that the problem does not originate elsewhere before doing
this, as our off-hours support is limited to verifying that the system
is up during scheduled hours.
Regarding accounts and passwords,
all accounts are in the format gg.uuu -- they all have a '.' A password
can be changed if you like -- it must have 5 - 8 characters. If people
don't like entering the account and password, and are using web access,
it could be scripted in. RLG can do a script if necessary.

Discounted Eureka & CitaDel Service Trials (22 February 1996)
Information *Plus* - a new CitaDel file (30-day free trial, available
for IIN *Plus* and any of CitaDel's other two dozen databases.)
ILL Manager Trial Offer 1 June, 2000.
We will allow up to two
institutions for a 30 day period of your choosing. We will give technical
support via email during that trial period. I am attaching a copy
of the trial use agreement in Microsoft
Word97 format. Please print two copies of the agreement and sign both.
Return them to me and I will dispatch the software to you immediately via
federal express. For the latter we will need a street address,
contact name, and telephone number for delivery. You may address
all questions about ILL Manager to me. The prices quoted for multiple
copies on our web site are for sales to a single institution. Please
contact me with particulars of the number of institutions, number of copies,
and amount of annual ILL traffic (loans and borrows). Please remember
that there is no licensing limit on the number of clients that may be loaded,
the licensing is per database server. That is usually equated to
an individual interlending office which maintains a separate database
of its own transactions. Multiple libraries on a single campus can
share the same database but all transactions will be intermixed and
might be difficult to sort out if they must be handled by different
personnel. This is really a matter of workflow for the individual
When dates for the training
are known, just contact the RLG Information Center at email@example.com.
They will make a temporary adjustment to the account user level so the
training can be accommodated. Here's what we need:
- Notice of the session at
least a week in advance
- Session date and time
- Which file
- How many will need access
including both students and instructors
RIC sets up a separate temporary
account for the appropriate number of users and emails the account and
password the day or so before. It is not set up by IP address.
