Circulation Policy extended to 70 days
I am writing to brief you on proposed changes to loan periods that are driven by our participation in the BLC WorldCat Local project for resource sharing.
Sarah Struble has provided a detailed description of the agreement that is necessary to facilitate a consistent Consortium-wide program (included below). The regular loan period would be extended from 56 days to 70 days (detail below).
The other change involves loan periods to facilitate the sharing of media material. This impacts only libraries that would loan this format (which is totally in your control). This is mostly informational, so you know what conditions will exist both for loans, and for the privileges that BU borrower’s will have.
Sarah has been in touch with the front line people on this, but I want to make sure we are all aware of the change.
If you have questions, please ask Sarah.
