Agenda Terminology Policy changes Patron workflow for submitting requests Patron workflow for viewing requests Staff workflows for lending Staff workflows for borrowing
Terminology Workflow – consists of a sequence of connected steps. It is a depiction of a sequence of operations; a model to represent real work for further assessment, e.g., for describing a reliably repeatable sequence of operations. Lender / lending library – the library supplying the item; you are the lending library when you supply something to another library. Borrower / borrowing library – the library requesting the item; you are the borrowing library when you request something from another library. NRE (Navigator Request Engine) – the guts of Navigator, much of the work done in NRE is reflected in Navigator, the interface for request management.
Policy Changes Please note that some policy changes may be needed in your library for the implementation of WorldCat Navigator: OCLC must be able to place holds on available items. OCLC must be able to place multiple holds on the same title.
NRE NRE is the staff request management interface. It is used for both the borrowing and the lending functions. You will be given an account in NRE to access your requests. Library Staff only have access to the requests made by their patrons or that have been sent to them as a lender.
