Periodical circulation lists

Learn about creating the Borrower File and Circulation List for periodicals in Amlib.

Circulation list

Circulation Lists are a checklist to accompany a periodical (usually to indicate the particular person has seen the issue of the periodical). If Circulation Lists are required for certain periodicals, then a Borrower Saved File needs to be set up in the Borrower module first.

Create the Borrower File

  1. Launch the Amlib client
  2. Open the Borrower module
  3. From the main menu, select File > DisplayFile – the Borrower Saved Query Results screen will display
  4. Select the F1 New button
  5. Type in the following parameters:
    1. Details = Name of Circulation List – for example: Library Staff Circulation List
    2. Allow other operators to access this file (Y/N) = Y
  6. Click the F3 Save button
  7. You can then add borrowers to the file using either:
    1. Borrower Where Search:
      1. Go to Main > Borrowers > BorrowerWhere
      2. Enter Where Search parameters
      3. Click the F7 QtoFile button – the Borrower Saved Query Results screen will display
      4. Select the file to be used – for example: Library Staff Circulation List
      5. Click the F9 Select button
      6. The selected borrowers will then be saved to the selected file with the following message appearing: The ‘XXX’ file contains XX borrowers.
      7. Click the OK button
    2. One at a time from the default Borrower screen:
      1. Go to Main > Borrowers > Borrower
      2. Search for a Borrower/s record using the F5 Query button or via Application > BorrowerWhere
      3. If there is only one matching record, then from the main menu, select File AddToNewFile – the Borrower Saved Query Results screen will display
      4. If there is more than one search result, a Borrower List will display: highlight the borrowers to be added to the saved file and then select File > Save Marked (use Save All to save ALL borrowers in the list)
      5. Select the file to be used – for example: Library Staff Circulation List
      6. Click the F9 Select button
      7. The selected borrowers will then be saved to the selected file with the following message appearing: The ‘XXX’ file contains XX borrowers.
      8. Click the OK button

Once the file has been created, it will be available in the Periodical application for use as a Circulation list.
