Reference Materials in AccuTrack/AccuSQL

Here is a clever way to loan reference materials in AccuTrack/AccuSQL. Most labs and centers only want the reference materials to be out for a few hours at a time. AccuTrack/AccuSQL materials feature will allow for hourly check-out limits, however, if the reminder goes to the student, it is difficult for the lab or center to remember to make sure the materials are actually back in time.

Ref1

To work around this issue, simply create two IDs for the reference material. One will be used under the student number while the other will be used under the tutor or assistant number.

Ref4

Now the material is checked out to both the student and the tutor and each will get email reminders. This helps the tutors or assistants to remember to ask for the material back within the short time allowed.
