Check books out one at a time

1.Locate the book you want to check out.
2.Choose Check Out from the Loan menu.
You see the 'Check Out' window.
3.Select the name of the borrower from the Borrower drop-down list.
If the borrower is not registered, right-click the Borrower field and choose Add from the popup menu. Complete the information requested in the 'Borrower Edit' window, then click the OK button.
4.In the Date Borrowed field, specify the date the book was borrowed. By default, BookCAT fills in today's date.
5.In the Date Due field, specify the date the book is due to be returned.
6.Click OK.

Even though BookCAT lets you change the name of the borrower in the 'Check Out' window, always check the book in before you check it out again. This is important if you want the loan history to be correct.
