New Request (ILL/DDS) security feature debuts

On Monday, May 21st, a new security feature was implemented in Request (UC’s interlibrary loan and document delivery service).  The feature prevents the user from entering an email address other than a UC campus email address OR any email address included in the patron’s account.

Now, if a campus patron enters a non-UC email address into a Request and the email address is not currently included in the associated patron account, the message below displays:

Please provide a valid email address. Only University of California email addresses, or addresses registered in your library account, are valid.

Campus patrons who regularly use non-UC email addresses when placing Requests will need to update their patron accounts accordingly.
