Overview of the I-Share (UB) Resource Sharing Environment: Background, Relationships, and Processes.

The CARLI Office will be offering a webinar, “Overview of the I-Share Universal Borrowing (UB) Resource Sharing Environment: Background, Relationships, and Processes” on Thursday, August 4, from 1:30–2:30 pm.

Adapted from the UB Training provided to libraries joining I-Share, this webinar will cover the foundational principles and processes that establish UB in Voyager. The intended audience is current I-Share library staff that work with, or are interested in, I-Share Resource Sharing.

Library staff already familiar with Voyager Circulation and Call Slip will get more from this UB webinar, however all library staff may attend. This webinar will be a chance to refresh your understanding and ask questions you may have.

The webinar will help you be able to answer these questions:

  • What is Universal Borrowing (UB)?
  • How are settings standardized across I-Share?
  • How does Voyager know which of my patrons are able to borrow from other I-Share libraries?
  • How does Voyager know whether another library’s patron can borrow my library’s materials?
  • What do UBIN, UBLong, UBReg, and UBNonCirc mean?
  • What are ILLINET libraries?
  • How are patron records used during UB transactions?
  • What are the differences between Local Call Slips and UB Call Slips?
  • What steps does a typical request go through?
  • What is request promotion and how does it work?
