I agree and will send to the circulation list serve as well.  To help narrow
down the suspects you can see the date and time the hold was placed.

I have a suggestion that maybe we should send this information to the
Minerva-L listserv.  It's not only the circulation staff who place holds for
patrons.  I'm sure that other staff within a library place holds, also, like
the reference or children's departments.  I think all staff should be made
aware of how to do this.

In spite of the frequent discussions about item level vs. bib level holds on
multidiscs,  bib level holds are STILL being placed on Downton Abbey dvd
sets, seasons 1-3.  Season 1 has 8 bib holds, season 2 has 14 bib holds, and
season 3 has 7 bib holds.  Even though the records have all been edited and
have the item volume fields, this continues to happen.  The patrons with
these holds belong to the libraries referenced above.


What is the answer?  I encourage everyone to make sure that their circ staff
understand the problem.  I don't mean to throw anyone "under the bus" but I
can't figure out how this is happening other than placing holds in
millennium circulation mode.
