Mark Lost (By Patron)

If a patron is sure that they have lost an item and are willing to pay the replacement cost, use the Mark Item Lost function to change the loan status and create a Lost Materials Bill. If an item is not returned before 6 weeks after the last due date, the system will mark the item lost and add a Lost Materials bill to their account.

ALERT! NOTE there is no confirmation dialog, or option to cancel the mark lost process once Mark Lost is clicked!

  1. Select one or more circulations
  2. Click Actions and select Mark Item Lost (By Patron)
  3. The item is marked lost, the transaction is moved to the Other/Special Circulations list, and a Lost Materials Bill for the replacement price is created

Other/Special Circulations

Circulations that have been marked lost (by the patron or that were overdue to the point of being considered lost) or marked claims returned will be moved to the Other/Special Circulations tab.


Non-Cataloged Circulations

Non-cataloged circulations lists "check outs" of generic materials that are not cataloged. If a patron borrowed 5 paperbacks, the Non-Cataloged Circulations list will displays the 5 transactions with checkout date, due date, and item type, but no other specific information. There are no actions that can be taken on these transactions. When the due date arrives, the list will automatically clear.
