About EFTS


The Electronic Fund Transfer System (EFTS), is a transaction-based electronic billing system for interlibrary-loan (ILL) and document delivery. The National Library of Medicine (NLM) is committed to working with the University of Connecticut Health Center (UCHC) EFTS staff to expand the system on a national basis to National Network of Libraries of Medicine (NN/LM) member libraries.

EFTS is a joint effort between the National Library of Medicine, the NN/LM, and the University of Connecticut Health Center /Lyman Maynard Stowe Library, which manages and maintains the system.

EFTS is used by health sciences libraries for processing payment of inter-library loan transactions. It centralizes this activity by electronically billing members, which greatly reduces the need to create invoices and to write checks for reimbursement for interlibrary loans and document delivery amongst members.

Other advantages of membership include monthly detailed transaction reports, the ability to handle charges for rush or fax service, the ability to vary charges to members of special groups, and the ability to handle non-DOCLINE transactions.
