Post-it notes for damaged items

There seems to be some confusion about these post-it notes. On the line that says Lending Library enter the name of the library that was going to circulate it - not the owning library.
1. Using the standard post-it note form supplied by SAILS record the type of damage, enter today’s date and circulating library. This post-it should be put inside the cover of the item if possible.
2. The item can then be checked out to the patron
3. The circulating library should immediately place a hold on the item for the item’s owning library. A hold note must be entered briefly stating the item is damaged.
4. When the item is returning to the owning library, that library should update the item record so that the circulation note states the item is damaged. The item can then be put back into circulation.

Also please note - it is the owning library that enters the circulation note not the circulating library.

The purpose of these post-it notes is to allow a patron to borrow an item without being charged for existing damage.

Sincerely,
Deborah K. Conrad, Executive Directo
