On June 3, 2015 the ILS Committee approved the addition of the new Item Type; "Equipment" [EQUIP].
This Item Type does not allow holds or renewals, has a default replacement price of $25.00 and has a loan period of 180 days (Original recommendation was from the Seed Libraries in order to automate the due date for circulating seed packets).
Circulation Issuing Rules for this new Item Type have been added to each library's set-up. If your library intends to charge overdue fines for this item type, you must submit the change request(s) on the Circulation Issuing Rules change request form. Please allow 3-5 business days for the changes to be made.
If you need to batch change a number of items to this new Item Type, you can do it yourself following the instructions in the Linking Manual, Section XIV Updating and Deleting items, Part E Batch Edit of items (page 2) or submit a Batch Change Collection Code/Shelving Location/Item Type Request form.
