Limits of Assignments

There are certain limits on Assignments. They are:

  • Only one resource per assignment
  • Assignment periods can be from 1-365 days
  • Assignments can be scheduled up to 365 days in advance
  • Assignments cannot extend beyond 366 days into the future
  • Assignments that contain subscription digital resources cannot be assigned passed the expiration date

You also cannot create an assignment that begins “today.”¬†Mackin’s system runs a series of scheduled processes to maintain the integrity of checkouts and other circulation activities. In addition, we have no mechanism for terminating active online reads.

However, there is:

  • No limit on the number of assignments
  • No limit on the number of copies
  • No limit on the number of members
