EFTS User Agreements Now Available

EFTS logo

On Friday January 17, 812 libraries received the MLA Electronic Funds Transfer System (EFTS) user agreement for their review. Here are some fun facts:

  • 300 libraries already completed the signed contract as of Thursday, January 23.
  • Of the 300, 295 are existing EFTS users.
  • Of the existing EFTS users, 95% requested that the $275 activation fee be paid out of their existing EFTS account at University of Connecticut (UConn) Health, and 99% requested that their EFTS funds at UConn Health be transferred to the MLA EFTS when the systems switch over.
  • Of the 300, 97% completed the contract via DocuSign electronic signature.

We thank the many individuals and institutions who are collaborating with MLA on the success of the new EFTS platform:

  • Libraries, who have overwhelmingly embraced MLA’s efforts and are supporting the effort through signing up for the new platform
  • The National Library of Medicine (NLM) and the individuals leading DOCLINE, who are collaborating with MLA on enhancing the integration of EFTS with DOCLINE, to provide a superior and excellent user experience
  • UConn Health for their outstanding support and collaboration with MLA on making the new EFTS successful and the transition as seamless as possible for existing EFTS users
