When a pink-banded ILL is returned, please check it in and place it back on the hold shelf. Circ staff will clear these when the due date has passed. These items are in-library use only, so patrons cannot take them out of the library, but need to have repeated access to these items. So please leave them on the hold shelf (after checking them in). Any questions?
The different colored bands around library materials that we borrow from other libraries can be really confusing! Each color has to be handled a little differently.
Here is a Quick Guide to What Each Color Band Means:
Green Band = ILL; in borrower account, scan barcode on band; change due date at check-out to match the date on the band; if you don’t do this the borrower will get an overdue notice before the book is due back; renewals can be requested by the borrower by contacting ILL staff at firstname.lastname@example.org; when returned, check-in and place on ILL/NExpress returns cart
Blue Band = NExpress; in borrower account, scan barcode on item; system generates due date; write the due date on the band; can be renewed X2; when returned, check-in and place on ILL/NExpress returns cart
Pink Band = ILL In-Library-Use only; in borrower account, scan barcode on band; change due date to match the date on the band; when returned, check-in and place back on the hold shelf; this helps prevents it from being sent back to the owning library prematurely
Supervisors – please check the ILL/NExpress cart regularly for pink bands and re-shelve on the hold shelf (check-in first)
