Chapter 37. Checking Out Items

To circulate items from the Evergreen standalone interface:

  1. Click Check Out on the top menu bar. The Standalone Check Out screen opens.
  2. Ensure that the date on the left-hand side of the menu bar is correct.
  3. Enter the patron’s library card barcode in the Enter the patron’s barcode field by scanning or typing the barcode.
  4. Ensure that the due date is correct in the Enter the item due date field. You may enter a different due date manually, or select a different duration from the dropdown list to select a relative due date based on the loan period.
  5. Check out items:

    • For cataloged items, scan each item’s barcode in Enter the item barcode field. The barcode appears on the right side of the screen.
    • For non-cataloged items:

      1. Click Choose a non-barcode option to select a non-catalogued category from the drop-down list.
      2. Enter the number of items you want to check out, then click OK on the prompt window.
  6. Scan all items, changing the due date if necessary.
  7. To print a receipt, select the Print receipt? checkbox.
  8. Click Save these transactions.

The default dates are based on your computer settings.

Pre-catalogued item circulation is not available on Offline Interface. If an existing pre-cat barcode happens to be used, it is checked out with the previous author and title. If a new pre-cat barcode is attempted, an error of ASSET NOT FOUND (item not found) is returned upon processing offline transactions.
