Courtesy Hold Shelf vs. Regular Hold Shelf

Welcome back everyone ~
We hope your break was awe-inspiring and refreshing so you can now tackle the last 6-week blast of  Spring classes with gusto!
I wanted to clarify the distinction between the more commonly used Hold Shelf, as opposed to the Courtesy Hold Shelf near the back offices. When someone comes to the desk to ask for an item on hold, if that item is not on the usual Hold Shelf (for lending and ILLs), feel free to ask the person if they meant the Courtesy Hold Shelf. This is a common mixup, so I wanted to be certain you knew of the distinction. The Courtesy Shelf is what it is titled; it is meant to be a 24-hour way station for anyone leaving behind personal items. Please ask a supervisor if you have any questions.
