  • 9. Searching Use these only in Kansas Main and other AG resources: * Browse * Scoping * Limit by material type, language, date, etc. * Number searches other than ISBN
  • 10.  
  • 11. Searching On results screen: * Zeros means target is down or doesn't have any matching items * To check if a site is down, try Keyword Title search for KANSAS * Don't report sites that are down unless down several days

  • 13. Searching * Once results are back, combine results using Results Display Mode drop-down * Will only combine results on initial screen, not all records for title/ISBN * After combining results, clicking on title will show first library listed; see different versions by clicking on other libraries

  • 29. ILL Requesting Requesting multiple copies: * instead of Request This Item , use Multi-copy Request on left side under ILL Options * AGent will search for all potential lenders - may take several seconds * enter # of copies needed in box under Lender List box * # of copies needed must be < or = number of holders

  • 33. ILL Requesting A note to Z target lenders: If we access you as a Z target and requests with ISBNs for items checked out (or otherwise unavailable for ILL) aren't bypassing you, let us know: * your library code * the ISBN in the request * the exact status in your local system (including capitalization and punctuation)
  • 34. Cataloging For libraries in Kansas Main, find records in this order : * Kansas Main, use Add a Holding * Library of Congress, use Add a Record * other Z targets, use Add a Record
