2008-04 Circulation User Group Meeting Minutes and Agenda
Discussion on circulation issues reported on in the Spring 2008 PALS Support and Training Services Report, p.23-24. Additional discussions were on best practices and shortcuts sharing, aleph level statuses, new circ reports in development, and the Consortium's circulation policy. Determined that a workaround so that credits could be sent to ISRS/Business Office as well as debits would take significant resources and could create unseen side effects, but that there might be a solution in Aleph Version 18. If no solution in 18, then workaround request should be dropped. Lengthy discussion of p-circ-77, process to delete expired patrons.
