  1. Discuss recommended ILS changes to facilitate curbside service:
    1. Extend Sierra’s days closed through the end of the extended Safer at Home order for all libraries (including those offering curbside pickup).
    2. Disable the “Request It” button on InfoSoup until paging lists are manageable and regular delivery is available.
    3. Provide modified pick lists and supplemental local holds reports.
    4. Temporarily change holds fulfillment setting to “local holds precedence.”
    5. Shoutbomb and Sierra notifications remain disabled until libraries can manage volume.
    6. Extend and stagger due dates.
    7. Do we need to extend expiration dates again?

Note: Some of these recommendations are not compliant with Resource Sharing Policy.

  1. Share local curbside pickup plans and procedures
  2. Other business



If a consensus is not reached today, we will hold an email vote on Friday to adopt the following proposal:

In response to the Governor’s Emergency Order #28, which allows public libraries to offer curbside service during the COVID-19 Safer at Home period, OWLSnet member libraries authorize OWLSnet staff to implement ILS settings that deviate from standard practice defined in the OWLSnet Resource Sharing Policy in order to provide better service under the emergency order’s restrictions. Standard resource sharing practice will be reinstated as service restrictions ease.
