EDIFACT Encoding of APDUs
NLC produced the following documents in 1991 to instruct libraries on how to format ILL APDUs using the EDIFACT transfer syntax if they do not have ILL protocol-based systems. These were originally prepared for use with the ENVOY 100, a Canadian electronic mail service, but are still extensively used by Canadian libraries with protocol-based ILL applications to communicate with non-protocol libraries.

Chapter 7 of this document provides full details for the EDIFACT encoding of all the ILL APDUs.
