TRAINING: Did You Know? - October 2018 - Book Club Holds

The Training Committee has changed the name of our monthly tip document from Tip of the Month to Did You Know?  This month's Did You Know covers best practices for placing Book Club Holds.  Several Training Committee members have tested and feel it is better NOT to use the feature in Sierra that allows you to place up to 99 holds simultaneously on a title. Rather, the agreed best practice is to place individual holds for book club participants or on a book club patron record. Their testing has shown that the holds are more likely to be filled separately and more efficiently when placing individual holds.  Read about that and more tips in this month's Did You Know!
