When faculty request print and an ebook is available

  1. If the ebook is already in midcat: double-check to confirm; if they still prefer on print, make the short-term-loaned EBL record invisible so we will not be paying for print and have usage charges on the ebook.
  2. If we have already purchased the ebook and they still on print, speak to Head of Collections. Hopefully this will not occur very often.
  3. When they’ve chosen “no ebook” and there is no EBL ebook in midcat, we automatically buy print
  4. if coordinator/proxy fills out the form, double check with coordinator/faculty (if ebook is available)
