Notes

Abstract: As more library collections are being moved to remote storage facilities, access services departments are creating services to support better access to these collections. In August of 2013, the University of North Texas Libraries created an online holds service, accessible through its online catalog. This service enables students, faculty, staff and community members to request materials directly from the catalog and select the pickup location of their choosing. In addition, a self-service hold shelf was created in the main library to enable patrons to pick up their materials 24/7. This article describes the planning processes involved in creating the service.
