Transferring Loansome Doc requests

Libraries may transfer unfilled Loansome Doc requests into DOCLINE if they are unable to fill the request from their own collection.  Library Policy will dictate whether you transfer a specific request (e.g., patron's max cost or copyright compliance issues), or whether you transfer any requests for a particular Loansome Doc patron type (e.g., unaffiliated users).
