LOCAL HOLDS POLICY (TEST)
At the LINC Policy Council meeting on May 24, a test policy was approved that will allow libraries to set up items so they are available for local holds. The test period will run from June 1, 2006 through April of 2007. Here is the policy that was approved:
LINC libraries may choose to implement local holds during the trial period. Local holds are defined as a rule that allows a library to limit holds that are placed on their own items.
Setting up local holds will require a local itype for each library. Items set to local hold will take holds from any borrower, regardless of where they come from, but the item must be picked up at the owning library. For local hold materials only, this will allow all borrowers to continue to place requests on those items, as long as the patron is able to travel to the owning library to pickup the item. Patrons will also receive information, at the time of requesting, whether this item is available or not.
This test will be implemented June 1, 2006. The Local Holds committee will review the trial process by December 1, 2006 and report findings to LINC Policy Council no later than March 2007. In April 2007, comments will be solicited from LINC library directors. LINC Policy Council will meet May 2007 to determine whether to continue with implementation of this policy or not.
If you are interested in setting this up for your library, please contact Pat Boze at 217-352-0047, x219, or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
