Automatic Summer Holiday Dates for K12 School Libraries in the Access PA Catalog (SHAREit)
In preparation for the closing of most Access Pennsylvania school library participants during the summer months, HSLC will set holiday dates for all K12 libraries in SHAREit from 5/27/2022 through 9/11/2022.

This process will ensure that all ILL requests made during the summer months will skip schools and will be sent to libraries open for business. The system will automatically set your library to be excluded from appearing in lending strings from 5/27/2022 through 9/11/2022, but you will still be able to place requests.

If those dates do not work for your library or, if your school library will remain open during part of the summer, you may set your own dates. Just click here for the SHAREit Tip, Setting Holiday Dates.
