  6. Other Discussion
    1. Refreshing ILS Subcommittees
      We would like to take the opportunity to refresh the ILS Subcommittees with new members and remove inactive members.
    2. Follow-up to holds sequence adjustments
      • We have made some adjustments to the holds sequence in order to match delivery routes. This has caused some libraries to experience an increase in holds queue report volume. We will be making minor adjustments to try and help alleviate this.
      • The next phase of adjustments that are recommended will be directed at adjusting net lender/net borrower balance load. We will be reviewing the proposal at the meeting.
      • Clusters should discuss whether balancing net lender/net borrower balance load is a goal and what exactly does that mean?
      • There may be factors other than the holds sequence that drive this balance such as number of copies that each library owns per title, the uniqueness of individual library collections, and volume of circulation. We have very rich data available to us in the monthly net lender / net borrower reports. Should a Work Group be formed to look at this data to see if it can be determined what other issues might be affecting load balance?
