5/2/20152 Request Circles allow libraries to: determine which collections and branches may have items paged and delivered to/from them. decide which patrons can participate in this delivery service.
5/2/20153 Tables and fields Fields in item, bib and patron records Request Rule table Circulation and OPAC options Automatic patron blocks Loan rule determiner and loan rules Hold pickup locations table WWWoptions Locations Served table

5/2/ End of case study Getting the book to patron: Branch A prints paging slip Branch A pages item & checks it in Item’s status changes to “in-transit” Item is delivered to Branch C and checked in Hold pickup notice is enqueued Patron checks out Moby Duck
5/2/ Things we learned Locations Served entries must be Valid lists. Invalid lists: system looks at all locations EXCEPT those listed.
5/2/ More… You can choose which hold pickup locations display in the catalog by editing tokens in WWWoptions.
5/2/ More… Inn-Reach holds ignore local hold parameters
5/2/ Some little bugs: Volumes act like copies Ineligible patrons get wrong message Maintaining the Hold Pickup table in Millennium is a known issue problem.
5/2/ Disclaimer Each library is different. Your experiences with Request Circles may not match ours.
