Advantage of waiting for HOLLIS II?

FOR EVERYBODY

User 1 would get minimum 14 days with book. Recall due date would be 7 days after user 2 places recall.

YES - the ability to e-mail recall notices would facilitate this policy for both users and staff. Currently, notices produced by HOLLIS are printed and sent (by most libraries) by regular mail.

 

 

 

RECALL OVERDUE PENALTIES

If we implement in the fall

Advantage of waiting for HOLLIS II?

FOR EVERYBODY

User is fined $2/day starting on the 1st day overdue. On the 14th day overdue, user is billed for the $28 fine and privileges are blocked until book is returned and fine is paid.

YES - Blocking users with overdue recalls may be staff-intensive since blocking does not happen automatically. In current HOLLIS, staff have to go into each patron record and enter blocks "manually".
