16 <title>The Issue</title>\r
17 <para>Pre-catalogued items (pre-cats), currently used for interlibrary loan (ILL) items at\r
18 most Sitka libraries, are created at the time of the loan to the patron, and thus cannot\r
19 be used to manage transit status when ILL items are received at a central location for a\r
20 patron at a branch location. Further, some Sitka libraries need to use brief records for\r
21 borrowed ILL items based on job descriptions and established workflows. Pre-cats do not\r
22 create catalogue records in the Sitka database, but brief MARC records do. In order to\r
23 facilitate workflow and maintain database integrity in a shared environment, it is\r
24 recognized that policy is required on brief record standards and recommended procedures. </para>\r

55 <title>Technical Note for Implementing Solution #2</title>\r
56 <para>This technical note will outline a proposal on how to use a fixed set of bibliographic\r
57 records and Sitka support’s proposed technical recommendations. The Circulation and\r

63 <title>Record Requirements</title>\r
64\r
65 <para>We recommend the following as potential requirements for a fixed set of records to\r
66 be used for ILL. Some sites may use all fields, while some may not. Some sites may\r
67 input actual title and author data for each resource, while some sites may create\r
68 fixed records with fixed generic bibliographic data. For example, as actual\r
69 bibliographic data is retained in Outlook, a Sitka library may choose to create\r
70 their ILL brief records using a generic title such as BFN Interlibrary Loan Book,\r
71 where BFN is Fort Nelson’s LAC code. (See Appendix for information about LAC\r
72 codes)</para>\r

200 <title>Summary</title>\r
201 <para>When the ILL item is returned, none of these records are deleted. The\r
202 bibliographic record is edited with the title, author, and originating library of\r
203 the new item when the corresponding barcode is reused. If generic bibliographic data\r
204 is used, editing is not required.</para>\r
205 <para>Solution #2 allows the item to be tracked from receipt, through any transfers\r
206 between branches, and eliminates the need for circulation staff to key in any data\r
207 when the circulation occurs.</para>\r
208 <para>Solution #2 is best for multi-branch libraries, or at single branch sites where\r
209 circulation staff are not responsible for keying in item information.</para>\r
210 <para>Solution #2 allows for email notification to patron when hold is captured.</para>\r
211\r
212 <note>\r
213 <para>One issue with Solution #2 using actual bibliographic title and author data is\r
214 that returned ILL items with outstanding fines will display on the patron record\r
215 with the current title of the MARC record under which their ILL circulated. For\r
216 example, if a barcode is re-used while a patron still has fines attached to that\r
217 copy, patron’s record will be updated and contain the new title information, not\r
218 the information for the item they originally borrowed. </para>\r
219 <para>Sitka support team recommends ILL and circulation staff be aware of this and\r
220 adopt procedures to manage fines on ILLs at time of check-in if using actual\r
221 bibliographic data in brief MARC records. This could include voiding the\r
222 circulation fine and creating a “grocery” bill with all relevant details in\r
223 note, or collecting payment at time of check-in when possible. </para>\r
224 <para>Sites using generic data will not have to manage this as fines on patron\r
225 account would reflect title BFN Inter Library Loan Book, for example. </para>\r

475 <note><para>One issue with using actual bibliographic title and author data is\r
476 that returned ILL items with outstanding fines will display on the patron record\r
477 with the current title of the MARC record under which their interlibrary loan circulated. For\r
478 example, if a barcode is re-used while a patron still has fines attached to that\r
479 copy, patron’s record will be updated and contain the new title information, not\r
480 the information for the item they originally borrowed. </para>\r
481 <para>Support recommends ILL and circulation staff be aware of this and\r
482 adopt procedures to manage fines on ILLs at time of check-in if using actual\r
483 bibliographic data in brief MARC records. This could include voiding the\r
484 circulation fine and creating a <guilabel>grocery</guilabel> bill with all relevant details in a\r
485 note, or collecting payment at time of check-in when possible. </para>\r
486 <para>Sites using generic data will not have to manage this as fines on patron\r
487 account would reflect the title as Interlibrary Loan Book, for example. </para>\r

640to ensure your statistics are accurate the only time a transit on an interlibrary connect item should be aborted is if the lending library decides not to lend the item after sending it in transit in Evergreen\r
641there are a number of report templates under SITKA_templates -> Intra-federation ILL stats that you can run to get your ILL stats\r

660<para>If libraries wish to close interlibrary loans for a period of time you need to submit a ticket to Support. \r
661Support will update your hold policies to prevent your patrons from placing holds on items belonging to other libraries as \r
662 well as block patrons from other libraries from placing holds on items belonging to your library. Patrons will be able to place \r
663 holds if they select the owning library of the item as the pickup up library. Currently it is not possible to post a message \r
664 on the OPAC to indicate to patrons that interlibrary holds are temporarily unavailable. Patrons are able to search the entire \r
665 zone but if they attempt to place an interlibrary loan hold they will get a message indicating that the hold cannot be placed.</para>\r
666\r
667<para>Alternatively, staff can simply not pull items from the pull list with a pickup library other than their own.\r
668 The hold will be re-targeted to another copy when the hold targeter next runs (assuming your library doesn’t own the only copy.)\r

680The patron permission profiles for ILL (PL ILL, Post-Sec ILL, etc.) are intended for accounts you create for other libraries. These accounts allow you to check out items going to that library so they show as checked out in Evergreen and you can easily follow up with a library about all of the items that have been sent to them via interlibrary loan. If you set their ILL email in the account the system will send them pre-due and overdue email notifications.\r
681\r
682The workflow for sending out interlibrary loans with Library Patron Accounts is:\r
683Follow the normal procedures through your 3rd party ILL system to identify the items that need to be pulled to be sent to other libraries.\r
684Pull the items from the shelf\r
685Retrieve the patron account for the library\r
686You may want to have a naming convention so you can easily retrieve the accounts via the barcode or patron search.\r
687Check the applicable items out to library account. \r
688The system will follow general patron circulation policies unless you have had Support set up specific policies for ILL. You may also want to set up ILL specific group penalty thresholds to allow more checkouts to an ILL account than to a normal patron account.\r
689If you are an Interlibrary Loan Connect library DO NOT DO THIS for other libraries in your Connect zone. We will cover that procedure later.\r
690Follow the normal procedures through your 3rd party ILL system to send the item to the borrowing library.\r
691When the item is sent back follow your normal procedures through your 3rd party ILL system to return the item.\r
692The item will either have the status of checked out or in-transit in Evergreen. Check the item in to set the status to Reshelving.\r
