[bksvol-discuss] Re: The Hold discussion again.

Somehow I missed the two-week limit on holds discussion. I  checked the list, 
and indeed there are holds from Nov. & Dec. 2009, as well as this past January. 
What decision was made re the books with holds on them? I would expect that 
anyone who wanted could take such a book, unless someone posted to please leave 
he hold? With a 5-book limit, if someone is working on books that require a lot 
of time to proof, he/she can't download another book. to get it off the 
ready-to-check-out list. There are some books that might require a particular 
person to proof, because he/she is sighted, or  has ordered the book, or is to 
translate the book into Spanish or another language, or for some other reason. 
Is it preferable to have suc h books on  the   checkout list or off it, on the 
being-processed l ist because it's in a person's to-be-proofed pile.
