  • Learning policies, procedures and staff training documents is a priority for new libraries. Trainers are not able to cover all material. Library staff must take responsibility for working together to learn all of the new material. If there are any questions at all, please discuss them amongst yourselves and if they cannot be resolved, reach out to the EI Coordinator or your Regional Coordinator.
  • Fine structure (Circulation policy, Checkout, Loss of Privileges, Fines/Fees, Pages 4-5) $0.25 per day per item for overdue items up to $10.00. Lost and damaged processing fee: $10.00. Lost fee will also assign the cost of the item. Where you can pay (Circulation policy, Checkin, Recovering lost items and refunding payment, Circulation procedures, Checkin Lost items, Damaged Items, page 10-11) Owning library collects lost and damaged fees. Circulating library collects overdue fees. No refund will be given for lost items that have been paid for. If an item marked Lost is returned to the non-owning library, the item should be checked-in and transited back to the owning library. The system will not automatically delete fines and fees upon checking in a returned lost item. When the owning library receives the item, they can decide based on local policy what to do with the item and associated lost fees. Grace day/backdating (Circulation Procedures, Checkin, Fines/Fees, pages 8-9) One day grace period granted. Use backdating to get this. Holds Intra-Evergreen Indiana Lending. If a patron from Library A wishes to borrow an item from Library B, the patron or staff from Library A will place a hold on the item, specifying Library A as the pickup location. Library B will receive a report of items with pending holds; Library B will then pull the listed items and capture the existing holds. The screen will instruct staff to route the item to Library A to fill a hold, and the item will be put into transit to Library A. When Library A receives the item, the item will be scanned and placed on the holds shelf for pickup. Once the item is scanned at the pickup location, a holds notice via email will be generated or staff will be prompted to telephone the user with a holds notification. The Holds report should be retrieved and processed promptly each morning at each Evergreen Indiana Library. Items listed should be pulled from the shelf, packaged and processed within 24 hours. The holds list is regenerated every 15 minutes to ensure that the list is fresh whenever a library retrieves it during the day. Holds that are not processed within 24 hours should be re-targeted to another library if possible. In the event the item pulled to fill a hold is older or damaged, the library filling the hold is advised to consult with and inform the library requesting the hold that the item is in less than desirable condition. The requesting library may then make the decision to have the hold filled, retargeted or cancelled. Borrowed items should be sent back to the owning library or on to the next Evergreen Indiana Library to fill a hold in a prompt manner. Patrons may return any borrowed item to any member library for transit back to the owning library.
  • Staff training documents website
  • Circulation policy, How to issue an Evergreen Indiana Library card, pages 2-3, procedures, pages 2-6 Upon receipt of their card, patrons should be reminded that: An Evergreen Indiana library card is not transferable to another user. The library card is required each time a patron wants to borrow materials. Patrons can use the regular card, the key fob or even a digital app version. Reciprocal Borrower and Student card holder privileges are limited to the library issuing the card Signing an Evergreen Indiana library card denotes acceptance of responsibility for all fines and fees and for payment for lost or damaged materials. Registering a minor child for an Evergreen Indiana library card denotes acceptance of responsibility for all fees, fines and payment for lost or damaged materials charged on such minor’s library card. Registering a minor child with the profile “limited access” does not ensure that the minor will not access “r-rated” materials. It is advisable to contact the library to report a lost or stolen library card. If you lose your PIN number, you must come back into the library to have it reset. Library staff are not allowed to give it out over the phone. This is for your own protection!

Main profile (permission group): Pages 3-4 Circulation Procedures, http://www.in.gov/library/files/Evergreen_Indiana_Circulation_Procedures.pdf Reciprocal Borrower and Student user profiles have access only to the member library issuing the Reciprocal Borrower or Student card. The member library may request items for these patrons from the other member libraries via traditional Interlibrary Loan. An item may not be requested via the hold/transit Intra-Evergreen lending process. The item must be requested and processed by the member library making the request and the member library filling the request via Interlibrary Loan using the procedures set out in the Indiana Library Resource Sharing Manual.

  • Circulation policy, How to issue an Evergreen Indiana Library card, pages 2-3, procedures, pages 2-6, Circulation Manual Chapter 2. Patron statistical categories: Dynamic way to collect specific information about patrons. Set up by the localadmin. Can collect any data about a patron: Town or township of residency, M/F/Other PLAC Home Library: Available for all EI. If you give out a PLAC card, choose the library where the patron has a resident or non-resident card here. Save and Clone options.
  • Chapter 2, Patron Confidentiality Policy Patron confidentiality policy: No Evergreen Indiana member library should release any information about a patron record without reviewing and confirming compliance with the Evergreen Indiana Patron Record Confidentiality Policy. This includes “in-person” and “telephone” requests by a patron with respect to his or her personal library record or the library record of a minor. Any Evergreen patron requesting by telephone a list of items checked out on a specific card must use the barcode number. Library staff shall not give out any specific information without the Evergreen barcode number; staff may only give out the number of items due and the due date.
  • Multiple patron accounts Patrons may have more than one Evergreen Indiana account if they have an RB card from another EI library. If this is the case, do not update the RB account. Create a new account completely.
  • Alert message Automatic alert message Manual alert message Clicking on any of the options along the top right-hand side will get the alert to go away. Circulation procedures, Borrowing privileges. Color coding of patron Green: All is well Orange: Fines and/or Overdue Items Purple: Fines over $10 and a pre-collection warning + max overdues Turquoise: A message Yellow: There is an alert Red: Barred. Gray: Expired. Black: In-active
  • Chapter 3, Checkout Column picker: Add or take away any information that displays and save it by clicking Save Columns. Receipts: Setting auto-print will save to the workstation and will print a patron receipt as soon as you click Done. Or you can choose Print Receipt. Due date: Auto-fills according to the item barcode that is scanned in. The circulation modifier is the due date decider along with any closed dates that the library may have. If you notice an incorrect due date, you will want to note what the barcode number of the item was and talk to your cataloger and localadmin. You can set a specific due date but you will only want to do this sparingly since the circulation periods have been decided upon and mandated by the EC. Review Circulation Matrix with staff at this time. Pre-cataloged items: Interlibrary Loan Lending Interlibrary loans from non-Evergreen libraries are circulated using pre-cat. Patrons and staff are renewing the "pre-cat" ILL items when such items should not be renewed. To provide a reminder, modify the item's title when entering the pre-cat record to include "ILL-No Renewals" as part of the title. In addition, when you check out the item to the patron, immediately renew it with the same due date to set the possible renewals to "0". The procedure also has the benefit of providing two visual clues to staff and patrons that the item is not renewable. It may also be helpful to verbally remind the patron when the item is picked up that it is not renewable. Example, item is "Blue Smoke" by Nora Roberts. In the pre-cat title entry, insert "Blue Smoke (ILL-No Renewal)" as the title of the item. Renew the item when the item is checked out to the patron to set the renewal limit to "0.” Non-cataloged items: Set up by localadmin. Ephemera that isn’t cataloged such as magazines, paper-back books. Item doesn’t need a checkin and will disppear from the account after the time set. Borrowing Privileges (Policy, Checkout, Loss of privileges, page 4) A patron must present a card in good standing to borrow materials. A digital replica of the library card is also an appropriate form of identification for a patron to check out materials. If a library staff member questions the digital replica, staff have the right to ask the patron for a photo I.D. A patron’s card will be blocked, and no services may be obtained with it if the patron has 15 or more overdue items, or owes $10 or more in unpaid fines and/or fees. Outreach patrons will not be blocked until they have 50 or more items overdue.
  • Circulation procedures, Lost items, Claims returned, Renewals. Chapter 4: Marking items lost or claims returned Column picker: Save columns is in Actions for selected items Copy to Clipboard: Add to Item Bucket: Cataloging function of collecting items in one place for later manipulation. Show in Catalog: Opens up OPAC view of the record. Show Item Details: Show Last Few Circulations: Show Triggered Events: Edit Item Attributes: Cataloging function for editing holdings information. Edit Due Date: Mark Lost (by Patron): Mark Claimed Returned: Mark Claimed Never Checked Out: Renew/Renew All: Renew with specific due date: Check In: Add Billing Any Evergreen patron requesting by telephone a list of items checked out on a specific card must use the barcode number. Library staff shall not give out any specific information without the Evergreen barcode number; staff may only give out the number of items due and the due date. Claims Returned If a patron claims to have returned materials that Evergreen Indiana still shows as checked out, the material may be marked with a “Claims Returned” date by the owning library only. Overdue fines stop accruing as of the date entered in the “Claims Returned” field. A user may have up to three (3) Claims Returned items on his or her record at any time. The number of Claims Returned items is calculated at the consortium level. Only the owning library may mark the item as “Claimed Returned.” The circulating library must contact the owning library of the item to inform them that a patron claimed to return the item. The circulating library cannot mark an item they do not own as claims returned. The owning library is encouraged to periodically revisit items marked “Claims Returned” and resolve the issue with the patron. A hold on an item marked “Claims Returned” should be retargeted. Lost Items A patron may inform library staff that an item is “Lost.” The price of the item and any outstanding fines and fees, plus a processing fee of $10.00 per item, will be assessed to the patron’s card. The item should be marked “Lost” by the owning library. In the event, the circulating library is not the owning library, the circulating library should inform the owning library that the item is “lost” to stop additional fines from accruing and to enable the owning library to begin collecting for the lost materials. Lost items shall be paid for at the owning (billing) Evergreen Indiana library. The price of the item (found in the item record) and any outstanding fines and fees, plus the applicable $10.00 processing. Overdue Notices Overdue notices are sent as a courtesy from the Evergreen Indiana Libraries. Failure to receive notices does not exempt patrons from the responsibility for payment for library materials or overdue fines and fees. Patrons who provide an email address will receive an email notice three days before their materials are due and an email notice on the day their materials are due. Overdue notices are notices are generated for each library. The print notices are made available to the library via a unique URL. Each member library must access the URL and review the print notice PDF. The library should then mail the print notices. Print notices are not generated and mailed by the consortium. Enter your Evergreen log in and password (e.g., local admin or circ log-in). Please note that notices are automatically deleted after 30 days. A first overdue notice will be generated and can be sent via email or U.S. First Class mail 14 days after the due date. A second overdue notice will be generated and can be sent via U.S. First Class mail 28 days after the due date. The final notice, which declares the items “Lost” and assesses the replacement cost of the overdue materials and related costs, including processing and collection costs, will be generated and can be sent via U.S. First Class mail 45 days after the due date.
  • Place a hold: Brings you to OPAC where you can search for and find the hold you want from the patron’s account. Staff holds: Record, volume or item hold Patron holds: Record hold. Show canceled holds: Show any holds that were canceled for that patron. Get in the habit of entering your name or initials if you cancel a hold so that the staff member who sees it will know who did it for any questions. Policy, Holds and Intra-Evergreen Indiana lending Items fill patron holds based on proximity. The system seeks to minimize transit time by capturing the item and assigning it to the nearest patron on the hold list. The nearest patron may not be person who has been on the hold list the longest. The system will continue to seek to fill holds with other items. Holds are opportunity-based. Meaning if an item transits to another library to fill a hold, it will stay there to fulfill other holds so as to minimize transit expenses. Many libraries in the consortium want to serve their local patrons to the best of their ability by only allowing local patrons to place holds on their new items for 6-months. You can choose to be placed in a hold queue for a 6-month age protected item at another library. This means that as soon as the 6 months is over, you are in the holds queue to receive the item. Holds and Intra-Evergreen Indiana Lending. Patrons will have one week after the hold is filled to pick up the held item. Some Evergreen Indiana libraries may impose a fee for failure to pick up the held item. Patrons may have 20 unfilled holds in the system. Evergreen deletes unfilled holds older than nine (9) months old. Patrons whose Evergreen Indiana cards are “blocked” or “barred” will not be allowed to place holds until their card privileges are restored.
