Lending – App

Lending is only available on Libib Pro accounts.

Managers can lend items out of their collections using the mobile app and a barcode. While you can use the ISBN/UPC to do this, we highly recommend using Libib’s custom barcodes. You will be guaranteed accurate results this way. The lending options menu is located on the top right and allows you to browse currently checked out items (and check them back in), items on hold (which you can check out or release), and a patrons list (which you can do basic edits on, delete or add).
