The ‘Own Services’ function allows a library to configure the default cost when shipping an item to a particular location (i.e. as Lender only). For example, if your library has agreed to supply another library on a reciprocal basis, an ILL service can be setup to default a $0 cost into the Ship Cost and Base Cost fields when you are shipping to this library.
NOTE: Each reciprocal arrangement needs to be configured by both libraries (Lender and Borrower) in their respective LA Doc Del system. Before setting up a reciprocal arrangement you should consult with the other library to ensure they also enter a reciprocal arrangement with a default cost of $0 cost for your library in their LA Doc Del system.
