The Circulation Workflow using the mobile app Digby:

2. Click "Manage Pull List"The list contains the items students and staff requested via the Library Catalogue. This step is to be completed each day.


2/ If no holds were placed, the message "Your list is empty" will appear.


If a book has been requested, the book title, author, Dewey number and its barcode will appear. (Please note: The arrow symbol(Can be forwarded icon)next to the listed item shows the item can be forwarded to another pickup location, this function is currently not operational).


3. Find the requested item on the shelf.


4. Scan or type the item's barcode into the Manage Pull List window. The item scanned into Digby is marked as pulled in the system, and a notice about the item being ready for pickup is sent to student/staff email.


5. Place the requested item on the Hold shelf and keep it there until it is collected by a patron or for 3 business days.


6. Lend the item to a patron using "Check Out Items" button, scanning the patron's and the item's barcodes. Patrons need to show their confirmation email when collecting their item.


7. Return the item using "Check In Items" button, scanning the item's barcode.


8. Reshelf the item.
