8 LINCPac Enhancements Committee u Reviewed next version of HIP 4.0 u Made recommendations for possible changes, knowing that HIP 4.0 will be out early next year

9 LINCPac Enhancements Committee u Have sent a test LINCPac out to committee, with changes they suggested u Will meet again on December 14

10 Itype Reduction Committee u Met twice, next meeting is scheduled for December 10 u Discussed itype data fields, contacted other systems to find out many itypes they have, created a spreadsheet of our 800+ itypes with all data fields associated u Sent emails to directors who have itypes with 0 items, asking if we could delete u Will meet again on December 10

11 Horizon Holds Capability u Horizon support tells us that holds in Horizon are infinitely configurable, but not to proceed with additional holds rules until the number of itypes is greatly reduced u The recommendation is to get the number of itypes below 200 u Horizon holds use rules that include location groups, itype groups, and btype groupos to satisfy requests

12 Horizon Holds Capability u Algorithm used to fill bib-level holds follows this order: 1. Only select items with status of In 2. Eliminate items that have already appeared on a pull list but not checked in on hold shelf 3. Then follow rules in holds matrix (LTLS has 4 rules - nonrequestable itype group, location groups for item/patron priority, allbut Champaign fill all else, and finally Champaign is last priority for other libraries) 4. Location priority setting is on, so holds are filled next based on item/location match (not going into transit) 5. Finally, if a tie, pick the item with the lowest item number
