HOLLIS CIRCULATION LIAISONS MEETING

July 7, 1998 9:15-10:45 OIS Conference Room

Informal meeting notes (MLC)

Introductions

Old Business

  1. Some extension students are receiving overdue courtesy notices that should only be for summer school students. (still in MC's court)
  2. Year 2000 update

New Business

  1. DRA "TAOS" chosen for HOLLIS II
  2. Some of the concerns raised by circ liaisons included:

    How will patron empowerment effect staffing?

    More frequent updating of patron records will be required in the new system.

    How does ADAPT relate to the patron file?

  3. Calendar data needed for Fall 98/Winter 99
  4. Please have fall 98-winter 99 calendar data ready soon! We need to update calendars in August.

  5. Patron labels: MC has questions about distribution of id cards, assignment of numbers.
  6. More on this later. Mostly a data-gathering discussion for MC to track down a question about barcode ranges for special borrowers.

  7. Gene DeVita (Tozzer): question about external billing; how do payments made externally get reflected in HOLLIS bill/fine records?
  8. Once the bill has gone off to external billing, further changes are not reflected in HOLLIS.

  9. Other?
    1. Sue Leavitt.- still getting some university-addressed notices that should have gone to Permanent addresses. Next time she sees an example, Sue will to MC for review.
    2. Judi Beland.- handling of books returned to library that is not the owning library. This inevitable practice of returning books to the wrong library is handled in varying degrees; the general practice seems to be to accept the item, route it through the library messenger service, but with a warning to the patron that the patron is responsible for the item if it is overdue by the time it gets to the other library.
    3. Tom Macdonald.- expiration dates on graduating seniors' ID cards out of sync with HOLLIS dates. Seniors had 6/30/98 on their ID cards, but HOLLIS had only through 6/10. Not sure whether this was intentional on anyone's part; will try to review for 1999.
    4. General discussion.- post mortum on GET ANY.
    5. Judi Beland.- approximately one dozen patron records with PN "DUPLICATE OF <patron id number>," -- Judi provided documentation; MC will investigate.

Next Meeting: August 4, 1998 -- 9:15-10:45 -- OIS Conference Room
