Can Booktracks track items being transferred between locations or buildings?
The Inter-School Building Loan feature in Booktracks allows you to track textbooks, equipment, or other assets as you transfer them from one building to another. This is helpful if you need to distribute items from one central location to all schools in the area or if you need to share items among schools in a district to accommodate shortages or special needs.
You can configure your circulation settings to establish whether loaned items should be returned to the original location (temporary loan) or if they would then stay at the new school, which will be responsible for them (permanent loan).
The “Items On Loan” report allows you to view the status of any items that have been loaned, so textbook coordinators can keep track of items in the transit process and hold schools accountable for the textbooks or pieces of equipment they receive (temporary loan).
