Links take you to an external website. They are accessible to all your patrons and visitors. They provide a way to create a useful resource for your school—for example, a list of links to other local schools with public libraries or other educational institutions.

A patron is anyone who can check out a resource copy from your library. Patrons can take resources on loan, place holds, leave recommendations and reviews, and be charged fines. All of this information (as well as contact info) can be found on a patron's library profile (you have a profile, too).

The Circulation tab features a number of circulation-related reports (active loans, transits, etc.). The term "circulation" also refers to tasks like the pull list and checking resources in and out for patrons.
