We are a consortium consisting of a university library, community college
library, public libraries, and special libraries. We are exploring
patron initiated holds via the OPAC. Although we share the Innovative
system, we don't share resources as such (that is-you would have to get
your own card at each library to check out at that library). We currently
do mostly copy returned soonest holds, with staff choosing the locations.
Not sure how that would work for patrons. Between us we have hundreds of
item locations, so having patrons choose for bib level or item level
seems like it might be a problem. Any consortiums with similar rules out
there that are doing patron initiated holds that would be willing to
share experiences or advice?
