Southeastern NY Library Resources Council sponsors SEAL, Southeastern Access to Libraries, the region's virtual union catalog and electronic interlibrary loan service. The service's first version used OCLC's Virtual Document eXchange (VDX) software. An integral feature of the system was the ISO-ILL interoperability that provided academic libraries using ILLiad the means to process SEAL ILL requests seamlessly in ILLiad. In 2013, Southeastern's technology committee needed to find a replacement for VDX. In their search, the committee did not find an affordable off-the-shelf product, so one was developed in-house in 2015 by Southeastern staff. Three components form the new system. Index Data's Master Key software is used for the VUC. An email requesting and tracking system was developed by Southeastern staff. Accommodating our academic libraries for processing all ILLs within ILLiad was a challenging part of building the system. Existing ILLiad procedures were not found for importing an email into ILLiad. Communication and collaboration with IDS staff led to the development of a SEAL add-on for ILLiad libraries. After installing the add-on, ILLiad libraries now import and process SEAL requests within ILLiad, as well as use the add-on to search the SEAL VUC and place requests to other participating SEAL libraries.
