RE: [IUG] How to extend hold expiry dates

Our experience with this may not help Joanne in her consortium
environment, but this is what we've done.
We recently closed our building for two weeks for a carpeting project.
In advance of the closing date, we went into the loan rules and changed
the "Time to pickup" to a large number of days. Granted it meant
updating a whole long list of loan rules, but it worked very well and
was worth the tedious updating of all the rules. The task was more
tedious than it was time consuming. After we opened again we reset the
"Time to pickup" back to our usual 9 days.

Subject: [IUG] How to extend hold expiry dates
Is there some way to extend the expiry date of a hold after it has been
put on the holdshelf? We are preparing to re-open after a move into our
new facilities, and I'm trying to find a way to keep the holds from
expiring before we open. We are checking in a backlog of books, and the
hold expiry dates are showing up as January 30th. I would like to extend
the expiry date for pickup to February 6th (two weeks from now).
Note that we are part of a consortium, so I can't change any parameters
that will affect the other library.
Thanks for any help you can give.
