There is good news about holds in the Release 2005 Preliminary
Enhancements List. "The files of holds placed on the system will be
enhanced with a new database structure to speed up sorting and offer
enhanced access to the information in this file." I hope this is the
answer to all our holds prayers.

Actually I would like to see a better way to identify these records, along with being able to group those at the bindery - we have procedures for rushing all of these is requests come in, but now that we have moved from manual to automatic request processing, separating these out for different handling is much more difficult. We will keep exploring the mechanisms available to see how best to handle it.
