Shortcut for counting the number of Holds on an item at your library

Here’s a shortcut for counting the number of Holds on an item at your library when patrons ask you where they’re at in the queue.

  1. Search for the item in the catalog.
  2. Bring up the Bib Record Detail for the item.
  3. “Edit holds” for the item.
  4. Change the “Sort by” (in the upper-left corner of the screen) from “Priority” to “Pickup Library”.

The holds for this item at your library will now be at the top of the Edit Holds list where they can be easily counted.
