Materials Requests in Aspen Discovery
Last week we learned about Aspen’s options for enabling materials requests or purchase suggestions. These all work seamlessly within the interface via a form connected to your ILS or by connecting them to an external link. However, if your ILS doesn’t include a materials request module or you’re looking to upgrade from the Google Form life, Aspen’s own built-in purchase request module might work for you! In this week's Aspen Weekly, we go over the steps of setting up the materials request system within Aspen.
Materials Requests - Overview
While Aspen Discovery is great at helping users find exactly what they’re looking for, sometimes the library simply doesn’t own an item in their collection… yet. Materials requests to the rescue! (Or purchase suggestions, if you prefer). Whatever you call it, Aspen can integrate with your existing workflow to receive and manage requests, or help you create a new system that works for your patrons and staff alike.
