The class emphasis is on searching and placing holds, and managing the paging list.

Do you know how to search the database for all DVD’s in which John Travolta appears? Can you pull up a list of all the books in our database, by James Patterson, that were published in the year 2001? This class will explore the Search/Holds mode on the Circulation Desk including keyword searching and all aspects of limiting.

We will also focus on best practices for managing the paging list and the clear holdshelf mode.

Covered in this class:

- - searching holds using all available indexes
- - special emphasis on keyword searching
- - keyword searching using adjacency and Boolean operators
- - limiting searches using all available limits
- - placing item and title level holds
- - modifying, transferring, and deleting holds
