Tip of the Week - #102 (Checking out to Patrons)

Keywords: check-out, pickup anywhere

It has come to my attention that some sites are checking out their PCIRC items to the patrons before the patron comes in to pick the item up. Please don’t do this as this shortens the length of time the patron has to keep the book. PCIRC items should only be checked out to the patron, even if it’s a Pickup Anywhere item, with the patron standing in front of you ready to pick the item up.
