New Borrowing Policy Feature

November 21, 2019

Auto-Graphics has added the new "Borrowing Policy" feature requested by BCUC members! This highly anticipated new feature allows libraries to hide the "Request this Item" button based on the material format (eg. DVD).

Does your library only allow patrons to request Books? Now you can hide the request button on all other material types to save ILL Staff time cancelling patron-created requests for formats your library ILL Policy does not allow.

More information in our new Borrowing Policy Set-up Guide here:

Please note that by default all material formats have been set to allowable in order to implement this feature (except the known issue of eBooks & eSerials). We recommend that all libraries with Patron-initiated Interlibrary loan requesting update their Staff Dashboard > ILL Admin > Participant Record > Borrowing policy as soon as possible to hide the request button on non-requestable formats.

Please let us know if you have any questions or encounter any issues with this new feature! ~Illume Support
