Process borrowed materials received via courier and mail; prepare items for checkout and notify patrons of availability

Respond to loan requests from OCLC participating institutions and other libraries

Prepare loaned items to be checked in

Notify patrons when requested items have not been picked up in a timely manner

Maintain statistics of items loaned and borrowed
