Just a reminder since we are getting close to a busy time for RESERVE DVD/VHS usage---
***************DVD/VHS --- CAN NOT BE CHECKED OUT OVERNIGHT!!*****************
You must tell the user that the item is due in 3 hours even if Aleph is not registering the correct due time. Tell them the item MUST BE USED IN THE LIBRARY!
It is best if you can estimate the 3 hour due time exactly and tell the patron the exact due time. (do not tell them the computer is not working, they can figure out they won't get fined and this is our only recourse if someone will not listen).
If there is a test or paper due and many students have to watch this film we can not have people taking films out overnight., not even if they promise to return it the next morning. They might get sick or the teacher may be coming at 8 am to take it to class and you do not know this.
If you do not find a VHS/DVD on the shelf at some point and it has been gone too long let me know, I will have to track it down.
We are working with the instructor to ensure that all students have access to the reserve materials and this can be a tricky job at times. I appreciate all of your efforts to make this work!
