1 Scope
This International Standard is an Application Layer standard within the Open Systems Interconnection framework defined by ISO 7498. This International Standard defines the services for Interlibrary Loan. These services are provided by the use of the ILL protocol in conjunction with the supporting telecommunications service which might be a store-and-forward messaging service, such as that provided by the MOTIS Standard, ISO/IEC 10021- 4; or a direct connection-mode service using ISO 8822 and ISO 8649. This International Standard does not specify individual implementations or products, nor does it constrain the implementation of entities and interfaces within a computer system. Computer systems might range from stand-alone workstations to mainframes. This International Standard is intended for use by libraries, information utilities such as union catalogue centres, and any other system which processes bibliographic information. These systems might participate in an interlibrary loan transaction in the role of requester (i.e. an initiator of ILL requests), responder (i.e. a provider of bibliographic material or information) and/or intermediary (i.e. an agent that acts on behalf of a requester to find suitable responders). Various interworking topologies are supported, ranging from simple two-party interactions to multi- party interactions. There is no requirement for conformance to this International Standard. Conformance is required only for the ILL protocol specification.
6.2 ILL-transaction
An ILL-transaction is a single, complete instance of the whole ILL cycle, including all of the actions, service primitives, and messages involved from the initial ILL-REQUEST until the cycle is concluded, as with the return of the requested material. The term “ILL-transaction” is used in this International Standard in its most general sense, and does not imply an atomic unit of work with the ACID properties of atomicity, consistency, isolation and durability, as applied to transactions in the OSI transaction processing model (ISO/IEC 10026-1). ILL-transactions may overlap in time, i.e. multiple ILL-transactions may be processed concurrently by a given open system. An ILL-transaction may be initiated only by a requester. A sub-transaction refers to the set of communications activity involving an intermediary and a responder or another intermediary, and is related to an ILL-transaction initiated by a requester. A sub-transaction is not, in itself, an actual ILL-transaction. A sub-transaction may be initiated only by an intermediary.WhenanILL-transactioninvolvesthreeormoreparties,theinitial-requesteristhepartythatgeneratedthe initial ILL-REQUEST. The final-responder is the last recipient of an ILL-REQUEST for that ILL-transaction. Individual ILL-transactions may be related to each other, for example a succession of attempts by a requester to contact different responders directly. Such ILL-transactions form an ILL-transaction group. It is at the discretion of the initiator to determine whether such ILL-transactions are to be related explicitly through the ILL-transaction identifier; such grouping of ILL-transactions may be done for example to provide a historical record of the related steps associated with an interlibrary loan.
