Once a year, Alliance members reconcile accounts and reimburse each other for lost and damaged materials.
- Lost items are defined as items checked out to a Summit patron with a due date that falls in the AAR accounting year, April 1 through March 31.
- Damaged items are defined as items reported damaged in the AAR accounting year, April 1 through March 31.
AAR 2023 will encompass request due dates of April 1, 2022 through March 31, 2023.
To avoid separate payments to every other member, Alliance staff will calculate the net difference and inform the members how much is owed to the other members.
Current lists and documents will be linked as they become available. Some links from the most recent AAR have been maintained for reference.
