Answer

Scotch Library overdue notices are run accordingly:

  • Junior School - students receive a printed overdues slip during their Library borrowing lesson and parents are emailed on a fortnightly basis on a Monday.
  • Middle School - students are emailed on a fortnightly basis on a Monday and parents receive an email copy of Notices 4 and 5.
  • Senior School - students are emailed on a fortnightly basis on a Thursday and parents receive an email copy of Notices 4 and 5.

      • Loan Category=SCT 6-8 or SCT K-5, Campus=Scotch Junior Middle, and Borrower Type=Student)
  6. Click ‘View’ to check what students are being charged for (ie. no leftover charges from 2015).
    • If necessary, return to Circulation Desk to fix any discrepancies (ie. change due date on a book for a student who is away on exchange (email student with details about this) or change a staff member into the correct ‘Borrower Type')
