If your designated ILL person ever goes on vacation or your library is going to be closed or you can’t access Agent (the statewide Kansas ILL system) for a few days, you can set up a Holiday for the system to automatically skip your library for that period of time.

Here’s how you can do that. (This screencast will walk you through the process)

  1. Login to Agent.
  2. Go the Staff Menu.
  3. ILL Admin. (Where you go to look at your pending requests).>
  4. In the sidebar, click on Maintain Participant Record (the same place you go to update your preferred lender list.)
  5. Scroll down to Holiday List (it’s below Address/Contact Information)
  6. In the start date column, put in the first day the system needs to skip you (ex. 03/06/2011).
  7. In the End date column, put in the last day the system needs to skip you (ex. 03/07/2011).
  8. Click Update to save your changes.

The system will now skip your library on your indicated dates. Please let Heather know if you have any further questions about using Agent.
