As many have asked we have begun to look at ways to minimize the number of long 
term "Hold For" books in the Checkout List. We would like to try a new policy 
of limiting a "Hold For" to 3 months.

Here is a breakdown of the "Hold for" books in Checkout organized by when they 
were added to the list:

Before Aug 18 2010: 2
Aug 18 – Sep 17:      2
Sep 18 – Oct 17:      3
Oct 18 – Nov 17:      6
Nov 18 – Dec 17:     4
Dec 18 – Jan 17:      14
Jan 18 – Feb 17:      17

Unless there is strong objection to the 3 month limit we will implement that in 
2 weeks. So, if there is a book being held for you that has been up for 3 or 
more months this would be the time to start working on it.
