Reminder: After Borrowing Requests are 'Received' by the Library in the Borrowing Requests list, they still need to be checked out to the patron's account when they pick up the item. This removes it from the Active Hold Shelf and loans it out to the patron which ensures they receive necessary notices about the item.

Nicole discussed the difference between the Resource Sharing Directory and the Alma Rotas.
