Borrower requests for items in CRS
Borrower requests for items in CRS will be accepted from any of Georgia
Southern's faculty or students. We will not fill requests for material
in CRS for GIL Express or ILL.
The Resource Management unit of CRS will handle most of these requests
because the bulk of material appearing in the OPAC with a CRS location
will be in our unit awaiting cataloging. The requested title should be
located and flagged with a notify flag for the library user or the
Access Services staff member making the request. The title will get
priority handling. The title should complete all Resource Management
processes by the end of the day that the request is made.
Rush/ Notify Items
Items with special handling flags in them such as RUSH or Faculty
notification forms should be completed ahead of items in the regular
flow of work.
RUSH items must have a RUSH flag in them and are to be sorted from the
truck in Resource Management when a truck is ready and cataloged
These items are to be hand carried to the processor before 11 a.m.
NOTIFY items are to be cataloged and updated before the end of the day
receive them. They are to be hand carried to the processor as soon as
Resource Management processes for the title are complete.
Rush items must be flagged RUSH in order to assure same-day
processing (labeling, etc.)
Faculty notification forms or Notify flags are placed in NOTIFY
and do not indicate that the item should be rushed.
