This is a one time setup. Once set up for the Mechai Learning Commons (MLC) only books from the MLC and the elementary professional collection can be checked using this app. Return to step 3 for setup for the Secondary Library.

Books can only be checked out (not checked in) so the ownership is transferred between patrons but not checked back into the MLC.
