    • Circulation Desk allows you to check books out, update patron records, check to see what the patron has checked out, see what fines are assessed on their account, see what books they have on hold or recall.
    • Circulation Desk also allows you to check books in, set them in transit to another location, clear missing status, satisfy holds and recalls, and waive fines.
    • When you swipe the Cougar 1 Card, etc., a patron record will display with a partial record showing an expiration date. The expiration is important to remember. It tells you if the patron has paid their fees. A RED expiry date means the patron has not paid their fees and do not have any privileges!
  • This PowerPoint module only scratches the surface of the Millennium Circulation System, and is intended only as a brief overview of the system’s most basic features. More advanced circulation procedures will be addressed in future PowerPoint modules.
