Hold On Tight, Here Come Holds, Part II

Go Live 2So my previous post discussed how we are "translating" our current Hold procedures to the new ILS. There is another current procedure that involves some tweaking in order to work with the new system.

Currently, if someone wants to hold a Popular Library book, we will place the item on hold until the end of the day. To make this work in the new system, you actually go through a modified checkout process.

You will place the book on hold to the same Branch Hold accounts that I mentioned in the previous post. The system will automatically apply a due date of the end of the business day.

For more details, see Placing Holds for Popular Books and New DVDs.

If you have any questions regarding this process, please let me know (email, phone, comments, wiki discussion page, etc.). All questions and answers will end up on the Holds Discussion page.
