That's just for visiting patron visits, not Minerva-Minerva transactions, correct?
Courtney Sparks
01:05:10
Will we be able to determine how many visitors from other Minerva libraries visit?
Courtney Sparks
01:05:41
Ah, ok :)
Janet McKenney

Many FAQS...
Courtney Sparks
01:07:38
Will we be able to opt in for Minerva - Minerva borrowing but not open up to MaineCat?
Courtney Sparks
01:08:05
Or another system. Is it an all or nothing?
Josh Tiffany
01:09:20
Would items with a 1xx location code work for inter system walk in lending?
Courtney Sparks
01:09:21
Gotcha - thanks
Jenna Davis

Just to confirm, patrons can make returns at any participating library?
Josh Tiffany
01:12:52
when checked in at a different location, is it set to transit or still listed as checked out to patron?
Josh Tiffany
01:15:49
If an item in lost in transit then the patron is responsible?
Jenna Davis
01:16:02
That does, thanks!
Josh Tiffany
01:16:30
Yes Mainecat transaction
Josh Tiffany
01:17:38
Yes it does.
Josh Tiffany
01:17:44
Thank you.

Just another scenario here, if a Bangor item was checked out at OOB and returned at Freeport, we wouldn't be able to check it in and the item would still be checked out to the patron until it was returned to the home library
Courtney Sparks
01:19:57
Yup - sorry, typing during discussion
Courtney Sparks
01:20:18
Ha! :)

Doesn’t this take a service exclusively funded by local municipalities and non-profits and attempt to make it a state wide resource?
Janet McKenney
01:28:29
Your ILS fees are local but infrastructure is funded in a number of ways by state and federal funds
Josh Tiffany
01:28:59
No thank. this is my primary concern with the project.

We will provide stickers for participating libraries to put on their doors with Logo and Maine Reciprocal Borrowing Program name/acronym. This was suggested yesterday by Nancy Crowell from Scarborough Public Library to provide in addition to dime sized stickers for patron cards
