Recommended Start of Year Procedure


Update Patron Information

While it is always possible to manually update all of your Patron records, it is usually convenient to update by importing the data from an import file. Follow the procedure detailed here.



Limit Due Date

BiblioTECH implements a system whereby you can limit the Due Dates calculated by the system. Generally these would have been set for the end of 'last' year so they will need to be updated.

To clear any Level and Group limits:
  1. Open Patrons Manager.
  2. Select the [Levels] TAB, uncheck Read Only and click on [Clear all Level Limit Due Dates].
  3. Select the [Groups] TAB, uncheck Read Only and click on [Clear all Group Limit Due Dates].


To reset the Global limit:
  1. Open Circulation Manager.
  2. Select the menu Options --> [Global] Limit Due Date.
  3. Select a date near the end of the year (do not select a date that is in any holiday period as set via the Calendar).
  4. Additionally, by following the same procedure but instead selecting Options --> [Global] Term, Semester, or Year Due Date you can also realign these dates for the new year period.
