The Resource Sharing Group met in Sakai chat.

The entire agenda for this meeting was devoted to the discussion of paging books for hold from the home campus / library. The group is working on a proposal in which we would allow users to place holds on books that are located on the same campus as their pickup location. Currently, these requests are canceled manually. Members came up with a number of pros and cons to paging books from the home location. A consolidated list of pros, cons, and other considerations can be found below.

At the end of the discussion, the New Brunswick Libraries came out in favor of paging books from the home location while the Camden and Newark Libraries were opposed to the idea.
