    Saving/mailing records for Course Reserves by instructor

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 18.01

    How can instructors use the OPAC to send the library lists of the books they want on Reserve?

    1. The instructor clicks on "Add to My e-Shelf" in the OPAC and saves the desired titles.

    2. When done, the instructor clicks on the "My e-shelf" icon. And selects the first choice, including checking the "Select this option to inform the Course Reading administration ..." checkbox. (Note: In order for this option to be enabled, it needs to be set in the patron profile. See KB 16384-10244.)

    Items in My e-Shelf can be sent by mail, saved locally on your computer, saved on server or send by Mail to Course Reading Administration.

    Saving My e-Shelf items on server

    Enter file name for saving My e-Shelf records on server (in alephe_scratch).
    Must be alphanumeric characters only, with no spaces.

    File name

    _ Select this option to inform the Course Reading administration that you want these records added.

    3. The Circ staff member calls up the course in the Web Staff / Course Reading, clicks on "Load file" and enters the name of the file which the message from the instructor indicates has been saved in $alephe_scratch.

    (Note to EL Staff: the program which does #2 is "www_f_myshelf_mail".)
