  2. 2. TUT LIS IT & SYTEMS MILLENNIUM ILL TRAINING • TUT LIS decided to use Millennium ILL for the purposes of circulating ILL items that have been received from the Lending Library instead of circulating such items manually because there is no Interface between Request and Millennium. • Prior the decision to use Millennium ILL, we circulated lent resources manually and it was difficult to properly manage and administer such ILL resources. • Though using Millennium ILL meant that ILL staff have to redo the process they did on Request, TUT ILL staff have been cooperative. • Because the item has already been requested and received on Request, some fields are omitted when we create the new
