How do I prevent my requests from routing to particular lenders?
The Routing Table and Routing Instructions provide borrowers the ability to establish preferred lenders and specify which groups of lenders (Resource Libraries, “All Other Libraries”) to which to route a request.
The Do Not Route To list may be used to prevent requests from routing to individual libraries in Library Groups in your Routing Table, Resource Libraries, or “All Other Libraries”; or to temporarily prevent requests from routing to lenders listed individually in your Routing Table. A maximum of 20 libraries may be entered in this field.
Borrowers can prevent their requests from routing to a specific member of a Library Group in their serial Routing Table by adding the LIBID to the Do Not Route To list. This can be done for an individual request during the Borrow process, or with a default list of Do Not Route To LIBIDs in the Borrowing Preferences, Serial Routing section of the Institution record.
Note: Users wanting to always prevent requests from routing to libraries listed individually in their Routing Instructions should remove the LIBIDs from their Routing Table or M/A/N Map rather than using the Do Not Route To feature.
