Resource Sharing

Policy:

All circulating items, including media, linked to the database must be available for on-site borrowing to all patrons holding valid unrestricted cards from BCCLS member libraries.

All circulating items, including media, linked to the database for six months or more must be available for reciprocal electronic loan to all patrons residing in BCCLS member towns. This includes access to all material linked to a catalog record. If a library is unwilling to send materials, the materials must be linked to uncataloged records.

eContent

All shared eContent material will be immediately available upon purchase and loaned for 14 days. The purchasing library's patrons receive priority for holds.

Recommendation:

Home libraries are encouraged to meet reserve demand for titles on the current New York Times Bestseller list and new media releases.

Items on the New York Times bestseller list and local summer reading list titles may be excluded from hold requests.
