|Automated Renewals in UBorrow / Aleph ILL|
The automated renewal function is specific to the Statewide Union Catalog at http://discover.flvc.org, and so will not work in all instances of renewal requests. Although this functionality will reduce the number of renewal requests manually handled by colleges and universities, it will not eliminate them. Colleges and universities should continue to check for renewal requests within the Aleph ILL module.
When a patron places the request for renewal through My Account in the Statewide Union Catalog, the automatic renewal process is activated. The request for material must have been placed within the Statewide Union Catalog.
Automated renewals work under certain specific conditions:
If these conditions are passed, then the item will be renewed for 30 days. As agreed upon in the FLVC Resource Sharing Standing Committee, UBorrow/Aleph ILL book loans are a 45-day loan with one 30-day renewal.
Both colleges and universities must continue to check for renewal requests, since requests for renewal may be submitted outside of the Statewide Union Catalog. For example:
To check for renewal requests that need to be handled manually, see the Knowledge base article: KBA-01400-G0F9
