Registration
Is the registration of the institutions/libraries into the electronic system of interlibrary loan services, which provides cooperation in searching the records for each ILS needs.

Profile
In the menu of „Profile“ is displayed an information relating to your institution that you entered when registering in the system. To enter the profile is necessary to fill the login and password.

Search
In the interlibrary loan system you can use two possibilities – simple and extended search. 1.) Simple seach – allows you to search a combination of two parameters – „Author“ and „Title“. You can combine both of these parameters or search only by „Author“ or by „Title“. If you fill the field „Author“, always choose the surname of the author.
Next, you choose the „Fund“, which offers the selection of books, periodicals, AV media or search for all categories, then you can specify in which type of library you want to search. The geographic location you are searching for the title - "Country" (the possibility of the Czech Republic and the Slovak Republic), and "Region" (you can choose from a list of regions).
Next, you choose the field „Find“ to start searching in the system, or „Delete“ to remove the completed data.
ILS will search in the catalogues of cooperating libraries which are involved in this service. Searching process is shown by percentage indicator.
In the result you will see the number of searched titles, which were found. You choose the required note of the library. Each note has its website of its library. There is a library system in which you have a form for completing the necessary data, which will be sent to the library, which holds the requested document.

2.) Advanced seach – allows you to seach combinations of parameters. As in the „simple search“ you search by „Author“ and „Title“. Advanced search enables you to choose „Keywords“ (a word or group of words selected from the title or the text of the document, describing its content), the „ISBN“ (International Standard Book Number that is assigned to the books and other publications for their international identification and identification of their publishers), and you can also use „Year“ (release date of the document).
The following steps are the same like in the simple search.
The geographic location you are searching for the title - "Country" (the possibility of the Czech Republic and the Slovak Republic), and "Region" (you can choose from a list of individual regions).
Next, you choose the field „Find“ to start searching in the system, or „Delete“ to remove the completed data.
ILS will search in the catalogues of cooperating libraries which are involved in this service. Searching process is shown by percentage indicator.
In the result you will see the number of searched titles, which were found. You choose the required note of the library. Each note has its website of its library. There is a library system in which you have a form for completing the necessary data, which will be sent to the library, which holds the requested document.

For the accurate search you should complete as many fileds as its possible. That will narrow your request and the system is able to generate a document that corresponds to the specified values.
