ACDC Advantage Plus

ACDC Advantage Plus

Do you want ACDC to join Advantage Plus?(Required)
This will allow for:
1. Advantage members to share eligible titles from their collections with the shared collection while maintaining a priority on holds for their own users.
a. Shared titles will still belong to the Advantage member. Users of any library or school in the shared collection can borrow or place holds on these titles, but Advantage users will have priority for holds.
b. Titles with active checkouts or holds can be shared if the Advantage Plus plan allows it.
c. All reports will show that the shared titles belong to the Advantage member. d. Your Collection Usage reports will include holds and checkouts for all users (shared collection and Advantage).
e. By default, MARC records won’t be ordered for shared titles.
f. In order to share a title, the shared collection must support the title's format.
2. Advantage Plus plans can either run automatically (sharing or moving all eligible titles every time they run), or the plan owner can choose to run their plan manually (so they can review eligible titles and choose which ones to share or move). This is done at the individual library.
