Completing your Participant Record, including the Lending Policy, is one of the first things libraries new to SHAREit do when starting to use the system. There’s a lot of information there, and it can seem overwhelming when combined with using a new system (along with still doing the rest of your job)!
The start of the new year is a good time to perform a check-up to make sure your Lending Policy is correct.
The SHAREIt Tip Complete Your Lending Policy! provides an overview of the fields that need to be complete.
The SHAREit Using NA vs. N in Your Lending Policy explains when to use N vs. NA.
Bonus Tip: Make sure the Lend & Loan Period (and Renew & Renewal Loan Period) agree!
- If you enter Yes for Lend (or Renew) make sure the number of days is entered for the loan period.
- If you enter a number of days that you will lend (or renew) an item, the Lend (or Renew) field must be set to Y.
