First you must register

Lending organisations identified in enactment decree 2004-920 dated 31 August 2004 must make a return to SOFIA of their book purchases.
As a lending organisation, the first step you must take is to register using our Internet site.
To do this:

Open the registration  site
2. Identify yourself using:
YOUR PRE-REGISTRATION NUMBER: «numéro de préinscription» 
YOUR BARCODE: «gencod»
The form will display pre-completed with details of your establishment.
Your pre-registration number will have been included in the letter you received from SOFIA. If you have not received this, click here  

Fill in the form, stating in particular the department responsible for PLR and the address of the person to whom SOFIA should send the confidential password.
The designated individual will receive the password via the chosen route (letter, fax or email). 
Connect to the PLR management site:  lending organisation declaration site .
Enter your Barcode and password; this gives you secure access to your private space. Check, using our link to the CLIL file (Commission de Liaison Interprofessionnelle du Livre), that all your book suppliers have like you a Barcode. If this is not the case, complete a request for issue. You need to be able to quote your book suppliers’ Barcodes when submitting a return of your invoices.

You may then make your return

You will be offered the choice between two methods of submitting a return: on line or using Electronic Data Exchange (EDI)

You can then submit your return of book invoices using one of following two methods:  
  • A manual return by entering information directly on line on the internet site lending organisation declaration site.   
  • An automated return using a special module marketed by the SSII that publishes your library management software, offering an EDI-mode interface with the Dilicom platform.
If you wish to use the EDI solution, by far the least limiting and most reliable, you must inform your SSII or your IT department of the format of your returns – available from our sites – and you can then obtain the additional information needed by contacting our departments.
