[en] The University of Liège has five libraries, composed of 16 branches spread over 4 campuses. Prior to "go live" with Alma, the interlibrary loan service was processed using a powerful in-house solution developed with APIs. When we went live in February 2015, we decided to manage resource sharing requests in Alma. At first, one site per library was designated as resource sharing library to fulfill discipline-related requests. At the beginning of 2018, we decided to reorganize and centralize our interlibrary loan service. To do this, we have been using the default Resource Sharing library in Alma that is only used for resource sharing and we have deactivated our five resource sharing libraries. This presentation will explain the configuration and workflows set up at the University of Liège, the benefits we found in managing resource sharing in Alma and then centralizing the service. It will also outline our future projects and developments considered for our interlibrary loan service.
