How do I adjust the checkout limit or loan period for my MackinVIA account(s)?

You can set checkout limits and loan periods from the “Settings” tab within your MackinVIA Administrator account. The maximum number of checkouts is 99, and the maximum loan period is 21 days.

Do eBooks have to be checked out in order to read them?

No – Most eBooks can be opened and read without needing to be checked out. However, eBooks will need to be checked out if users are going to download them for offline use or if the titles are subscriptions with a set number of checkouts (i.e. 26 checkouts).

If an eBook or digital audiobook is checked out in MackinVIA, will it show up as “checked out” in our library circulation system?

We are moving forward with our ILS partners to create connectors that allow MackinVIA resource information, including circulation and title availability, to sync with and display in library catalogs. Please contact Mackin’s Digital Services team for more information.
