Check In

 

There are multiple check in modes available in Leap:

1. Normal Mode

2. Bulk Mode

3. In-House Mode (jump to section)

4. Inventory Mode (jump to section)

This page reviews the In-House and Inventory Modes. These modes are not related to patron circulation. Instead, they are tools to assist libraries internally. Checking in items with In-House and Inventory Modes does not affect the Last Circulated date of the item. Reporting is available through Simply Reports for both modes.

In-House Mode

 

Use In-House Mode when tracking usage in your library. Each time you scan an item using In-House Mode, a count is added to the item's In-House Use. Examples of when libraries may want to use In-House Mode include: 

  • Evaluating which reference materials are utilized by staff at a service desk.

  • Tracking the most used titles at your library’s teen video game center.

  • Combining magazine issue In-House use with circulation statistics to determine the popularity of magazine title.

To access, select the Check In button from the Leap home screen and select the In-House tab.

Scan or key the item barcode into the box. If the item does not have a barcode, use the Find Tool to locate the item's record.

A pop-up will appear if the check in was successful

Selecting any entry from the list of scanned titles opens the item’s record. The In-House check in is tracked in two locations in the record. The date and time of the In-House check in is logged under the History tab. The Statistics tab displays the item’s current year In-House use, last year’s In-House use, and lifetime In-House use.

Inventory Mode

To access, select the Check In button from the Leap home screen and select the Inventory tab.
