PAPERLESS HOLDS

Hours of staff time can be saved by utilizing Paperless Holds by P.V. Supa.

Paperless holds removes the need to process materials to maintain patron privacy, e.g. wrapping, printing hold slips or keeping materials behind a staff desk. Also eliminated is the need to interfile materials on your public hold shelves. Items are processed and assigned a specific shelf, usually designated by expiration date. When removing the expired holds from the shelf staff only need to go to one location rather than searching through all the materials on the shelves.

Self-service for library patrons is improved; they receive immediate notification for their hold and are provided specific shelf location; they are able to locate materials easily, by specific shelf and title of the item, instead of the confusing systems devised to maintain privacy.
