Hi!  Newbie here again!  :)

I requested a book on 11/13 and it was accepted on 11/15 but not yet mailed.  I understand that the owner has 5 days to mail it.  But, if it's not mailed in that 5 day period, does the system automatically then cancel the request as unfufilled, and then forward my request to the next available?  Wasn't sure if I have to cancel it manually myself or if it's done automatically.  Thanks so much!

The system does it automatically, Carolyn.

Welcome to PBS Carolyn!  No worries, the system will handle almost everything for you.  Including roll-over of transactions that time out.
