Big Changes for Reserve Circ
I’m not sure if everyone is aware that our reserve 2-hour loans have not been automatically accumulating overdue fines like the books and journals in the 1-day or 6-week or 1-week categories (or even the permanent reserve 2-day loans). We’ve relied upon manual calculation of these fines in egregious cases. Up til now.
As of this week, probably on Tuesday (2/5), Aleph will begin automatically calculating and assessing these fines at a rate of $1.50 per hour. I have written a long 2 page memo that you need to read carefully at the desk. This has a number of consequences for our practices, which must now change. Please initial this memo here, and also initial the paper memo at the desk.
