Borrower types allow for distinct groups to be granted permissions such as the ability to borrow items, the default circulation loan period, ability to renew and/or request, eligibility for physical delivery, etc. Borrower type is one of the three primary characteristics controlling circulation policy sets (the other two being item type and shelving location). Each patron record in OLE must have a borrower type.

The Borrower Type document includes the Add/Edit Borrower Type tab. The system automatically enters data into both the Old and New sections in this tab. Selected data fields are available for editing.
