Coming Soon: Floating Collections

We understand that there has been some concern about our implementing “Floating Collections,” which we introduced at our Listening Sessions. We apologize for not better explaining it. Using Floating Collections, libraries can allow some items to move (or “float”) between locations. So, instead of ordering copies for each location, we will order x number of books to share among the three locations. When staff check in a floating item, the system automatically updates the item location so that it belongs to the location where it was checked in, rather than being sent to the location where it was checked out. With floating collections, we will free up staff time and get a better idea of branch users’ interests.
