IMPORTANT: The presence of a volume field in an item record that is holdable, will trigger the system to force an ITEM LEVEL HOLD in CountyCat. SEE ALSO: Understanding when item level holds occur.
STANDARDS FOR THE ITEM'S VOLUME FIELD
Other abbreviations include:
Sometimes the volume field has a blank space it in. That will trigger an item level hold if and when a patron goes to request the title in CountyCat. That is true even if there are other item records attached without a volume field present.
The result is an item level hold prompt in CountyCat rather than a bib level hold request screen. MCFLS wants to present patrons with bib level holds as much as possible to be filled by any member able to do so.
