3.7. Circulation modifiers

What is a Circulation Modifier?  A circulation modifier is an assigned value that allows your library to set rules on media types.

See the table below for a listing of Circulation Modifiers that are currently available in SPARK.

User Group is consulted before additional circ mods are created.  If a new one is added it usually means a lot of policies need to be adjusted.
