Library Record Counts FY2013

The Bib column represents the number of bibliographic records in your library’s database. The Bibs w/o MFHDs column is a subset of that count and represents bibliographic records without associated MFHDs or holdings. The MFHD column represents the number of MFHD (MARC Format for Holdings Data) records in your library’s database. The MFHDs w/o items column is a subset of that count and represents MFHDs without associated item records. These could feasibly represent serial holdings that do not have barcoded items attached.

I-SHARE Fines and Fine Notice Policy

Waiving Fines

I-SHARE library staff will waive any fine owed, with the exception of fines/fees for lost items, by another institution’s patron up to the amount of $4.99 per item. This policy is intended to prevent borrowers from being blocked due to small billing amounts and to prevent libraries from sending bills for small charges.

Notice Generation

I-SHARE libraries will set a $5.00 minimum balance on notices for fineable Universal Borrowing patron types.
