Assignment Periods

On the start day, students can access assignments at approximately 3 a.m. and on the final day, students have access until approximately 9 p.m. in the account’s time zone. These times are not adjusted for Daylight Savings Time (DST), effectively making them 4 a.m. and 10 p.m. while DST is in effect.


Canceling Assigned Resources

Assigned resources cannot be canceled using the Circulation feature. However, members can be removed from scheduled and active assignments by full administrators (for all assignments) and group managers (only from assignments they created) on the View Members page.


Checkout Limits and Assignments

Assignments are not subject to the checkout limit. When students have already reached the checkout limit, the assigned resource will still be accessible.


Download Assigned Resources

Students can download the assigned resources. These resources can be downloaded to devices the same way that checkouts can be downloaded.


Offline Access to Assignments

Students can access assigned resources while offline, but only when the resource has been downloaded. Anything not downloaded will not appear in the assignment list.


Removing Assignments and Student Experience

If a student member is removed from an assignment, the resource disappears from the Assignments page. If the student is actively reading the resource, the session is not interrupted.


Return or Renew Assignments

Assignments cannot be returned or renewed. The resource will automatically be made available to the student on the day the assignment start day. It will be automatically returned when the assignment ends.
