ILS/ILL ALERT – PULL LIST

With the new school year beginning its time for a Pull List Reminder. Doing the pull list regularly is of vital importance to ensuring the continued resource sharing of the region.

Here are a few friendly reminders with more information below:

  1. Hit list pulled.

  2. Do your pull list at least once before each delivery pickup.

  3. Do Not Delete Requests for other Libraries Patrons.

  4. Mark items missing if you cannot find them.

  5. Contact the borrower’s home library.

  • You must hit list pulled once you’ve printed/pulled the list. The items are bound to your location no matter what, but hitting the list pulled button lets us know someone looked at your list that day.

  • You are expected to do your pull list at least once before each delivery pickup. In other words if you get delivery 3 times a week you should do you pull list at least 3 days a week. If you get delivery 5 times a week, then you should do your pull list at least 5 days a week. It’s preferable that your pull list is done every day, one for habit, but also because patrons can see the status of their request (in transit is more welcoming than simply requested).

  • Do Not Delete Requests for other Libraries Patrons.  Requests will move on to another available item if the item is marked missing or checked out.

  • If you cannot find the requested item, mark it missing. Otherwise the item will keep showing up on your list as it’s bound to you.

  • You are expected to contact the borrower’s home library If you have the only circulating copy of a requested item and you have to mark it missing. Then that library can order through MNLINK or talk to their patron.

  • We do check to see who is not running their pull list. And I have sent out not-so-gentle-reminders to people. I dislike sending those as much as staff dislike receiving them, so please do your pull lists so I don’t have to send those out.

Thanks everyone and please send questions to the SELCO Help Desk.
