Circulation I explores the Millennium Circulation Desk. We will explore all of the modes available on the Circulation Desk.

Did you know it is possible to view individual loan rules, patron blocks, and the days closed table?

We will also explore information contained within the patron record including all fixed and variable fields.

Content covered in this class:
--Create, edit, and maintain patron records
--Adding a note or message to a patron record
--linking and merging patron records
--Searching patron records using all available indexes
--Checking items in/out
--Renewing items
--Changing the due date and backdating upon checkin
--Marking items lost or claims returned
--Searching and viewing holds in the patron record
--Collecting, waiving, and adjusting fines
--Viewing fine history
--Using the 'on-the-fly' template for checkouts

This is a GateNet core circulation class and there is no prerequisite. Some prior familiarity with the Millennium circulation module is helpful.

This class is mandatory for all GateNet circulation supervisors and any library staff member who will be working alone at the circulation desk.
