Borrowing Workflow (Loans): The basic borrowing workflow for loans is as follows. These steps should be taken every day your library's interlibrary department is open. Please see below for more details.
Borrowing Workflow (Articles): Borrowing article requests are automatically sent to potential lending libraries, users receive an email with a download link once a lender fills a request, and the borrowing request is automatically completed once that email is sent, so borrowing workflow for article requests is fully automated.
Borrowing Request Statuses: The following are the most commonly seen borrowing request statuses:
Turning Off Borrowing: You can turn off borrowing at your library if your library will be closed for an extended period. Instructions on how to do that
Borrowing Loan Periods: All lenders are obligated to assign lending due dates in accordance with the SUNY Libraries Consortium Network Zone Loan Periods Policy. However, borrowers are not obligated to provide the full lending loan period to their users. Borrowers may shorten the loan period for resource sharing items however they see fit.
