I was wondering the same since the hold was so far down, but it apears that when books are returned from the bookshare team with a hold it doesn't necessarily go to the top of the list it goes back by the date of the sumission. Please correct me if I am wrong on this. The reason I think this is the case is that I knew there was a book put back for me and I expected it to be at the top and I almost paanicked thinking it was gone, but then I found it a ways down. Also, I was not aware if our boks were not aproved that they would go back on the checkout list with a hold on it. I like the action of doing it this way so we have a second chance to fix things, but I just wasn't aware. ----- Original Message ----- From: Rogerbailey81@xxxxxxx To: bksvol-discuss@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Sent: Saturday, October 24, 2009 11:59 AM Subject: [bksvol-discuss] Re: Concerning, "The Last Speeches"... on the checkout list Okay, I am the submitter of Malcolm X, the Last Speeches and it is duplicated for a specific reason. The book was proofread and sent back to the checkout list with a request for a specific correction and with a hold on it for the proofreader. After a good long time had passed without any sign that the proofreader was inclined to take it back I just uploaded it again to give someone else a crack at it. I figured that the one with the hold would be there if that proofreader wanted to try it again and if not then it would still be available for someone else. If the rest of you do not think that is the way to handle such a situation then let's discuss what to do if Carrie returns a book for more editing with a hold on it and the person for whom it is being held does not take it back.

I see that "Malcom X: the Last Speeches" is near the top of the Checkout list and yet, almost at the bottom of the list the same book is there with a hold for Melissa. In this scenario, someone could easily accidentally check it out not knowing there is a hold. At the same time, since it is so far down on the list with the hold, from back in April, I am not sure that it would be right to eliminate the most recent one.
