CARLI staff have finished adjusting the Alma fulfillment configuration pertaining to the consortial 2/1/2021 term loan for all I-Share libraries, for both local patron settings (including library-submitted exceptions) and I-Share patron settings.

The bulk due date changes for each library's eligible loans to I-Share patrons have also been completed.

The bulk due date updates for local patrons are finished for the majority of I-Share libraries; CARLI staff have contacted those libraries where we still have outstanding work to complete for their local patrons' due dates.
