RE: Questions involving Circ and patron registration
[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]
How do libraries, without "hard copies" of patron registration files,
handle "legal liability?" One concern we have going completely
"paper-less" is how to hold a patron responsible for paying materials
checked out on his/her card, or one of his/her children's cards.

We enter all information at the time of registration, no paper anything.
The customer signs the back of the card at the time of registration
agreeing to our policies and rules. We got rid of our paper forms years
ago and have never regretted it.
