How to Prepare: Run the Old Title Holds Report
Currently, there are over 1,500 active holds in the system that were placed in 2015 or earlier. The oldest active hold placed on a patron card dates back to 2007, which means it has been around for a decade! Chances are, these holds are no longer valid, or, there may be issues associated with the patron or item. Libraries can view long-standing holds by running the Old Title Holds”report in Web Reports. This report will provide a list of your library’s holds older than 1 month, sorted by date. Find Old Title Holds under the Special Weekly Reports section in Web Reports to investigate!
Please note that this report does not include holds placed on on-order records. Place a Wonderdesk ticket if you'd like assistance
