Please check that your colleagues who work with your library's hold shelf are aware of the workflow discussed in this post.
This reminder was also sent via email to the I-Share Liaisions, Resource Sharing interest group, and Public Services interest group on 8/23/2021.

What is the task?: When an item expires on your library’s hold shelf, or, the requesting patron states they no longer want an item they had requested before it expires, library staff must follow the transit workflow in Alma to return the item to its owning library.

As a result of shutdowns related to COVID-19, The Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) has granted CARLI a one-year, no-cost extension to the CARLI Counts award. This extension means that CARLI can offer an additional cohort (the program was originally slated to include two cohorts). Cohort 3 will meet exclusively via Zoom, with team presentations at the 2022 CARLI Annual Meeting (tentatively planned as an in-person event).
