Did you know that you can specify which of your needs are for disaster recovery or digitization? From the manual input page, just select “Yes” for either option (or for both.)

When you do this, your Needs will be designated with a symbol for either Disaster Recovery (a red cross) or Digitization (a blue computer.)

These designations can also be used as filters in both the Advanced Search and the Needs and Offers Repository. The disaster recovery filter allows you to see what libraries who have suffered a disaster need to replace. If you have an extra, you can copy an offer to potentially match. Similarly, you can use the digitization filter to see what others need for digitization projects. (See Tip 22- Copying Needs as Offers for more information.)
