FYI from OCLC…

Beginning February 26, WorldCat Resource Sharing users will see a change to the ILL workform for both lenders and borrowers. In particular, the “SHIP TO”, “BILL TO” and “RETURN TO” fields will become the following distinct address fields:


Address 1

Address 2




Postal Code


When this change occurs, the new “Address 1” field will contain the data that was previously contained in the “SHIP TO” field on the ILL workform. The change will not impact ILLiad users at this time.


What action should you take? To make sure your library’s address information displays appropriately in the revised workform, you need to modify your library’s constant data to split the address information into the appropriate new fields. Visit for instructions to revise your constant data.


During the recent WorldCat Resource Sharing Best Practices webinar, “The Secret World of the FirstSearch Administrative Module”, guest speaker Tina Baich, Assistant Librarian at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI) University Library discussed the address fields.  The webinar recording is available at Please note that this recording is in the Universal Communications Format (UCF) rich media file format.
