Is there a dedicated function for marking books that I have borrowed from someone, as opposed to someone borrowing from me?

You could treat those books you borrow from friends like this: add them to the borrowed list but into the Borrowed By field enter: “From:” followed by the name of the person you borrowed the book from. That way you know it’s a book that you borrowed from someone but you’ll still get the mark reminding you of the status of the book. You could even set up a smart collection then, with the criteria: "Borrowed By contains From:" so that all those books you borrowed would automatically be contained in one collection.

You could also use one of the custom fields for this, renaming the field to "Borrowed From" but you wouldn't get the red x reminding you of the book's status.
