The Rapid team is proud to announce the release of
our innovative Book requesting system

There is no charging in the Rapid system and your library can save money by routing your article and book requests through Rapid first.

What can you expect from RapidR? Naturally, the usual excellent Rapid requesting functionality such your library location and call number automatically printed on the lending slip. Shelf checking for availability which means you will only get requests for books that you own and that are available for loan.

In addition, we have enhanced Rapid’s pod routing algorithm to include, for RapidR:

• Regional courier routing
• Geographical routing awareness

Your borrowing requests use Rapid’s powerful routing algorithm and this enhanced algorithm will move requests within your geographical region whenever possible.

RapidR will be released on July 1st. If you are interested in learning more about RapidR or about Rapid in general, please contact the Rapid team at:

We would like to publicly acknowledge and thank those libraries who participated and assisted in the development of RapidR. They are:

AUM – the University of Massachusetts, Amherst
NED – Northeastern University
UCW – the University of Connecticut
WCM – Williams College
NHM – the University of New Hampshire
