We just got home from our trip and Willow, our cat, has started the mandatory 24 hours of constant meowing to let us know how upset she is. I’m scared to see what she might have done to the bedroom.
I’m glad I have the weekend before I have to work because there’s a chance Willow will let me sleep Sunday night.
However, it’s just now, as I’m testing the purchase suggestion form at my library, that I realize the title is a pun.
I haven’t finished it yet but so far it’s delightful and I’m so happy it exists.
So, #BiblioCommons has been acquired by Volaris Group. I’m wondering how/if this will change the focus.
Oh yeah, definitely one if those days. I almost tried to delete my own borrower record because I’m writing documentation on how to delete borrower records and wasn’t paying close enough attention. (It would have failed because I have items checked out and holds and the system is smart enough to stop deletions under those circumstances.)
Last night I verified what I had started to suspect due to patron reports: suspension of holds fails between 9pm-12am Pacific time. Kind of an odd time period unless you know our discovery layer servers are in Eastern time and our ILS servers are Pacific.
So, I’m going to be submitting an interesting bug report this morning.
In more exciting news, I just finished #reading a great #romance novel: The Right Swipe, by Alisha Rai (https://seattle.bibliocommons.com/item/show/3476272030).
I haven’t read much contemporary romance, and nothing by Rai before, but I really enjoyed it.
I’m planning to read Middlegame, by Seanan McGuire, next.
It’s nice when patrons obligingly gives me good quotes to pass on to our vendors. Today’s patron “detests” the discovery later shelves and says “It really offends me.”
I don’t detest the shelves but I do think we should give the patrons the option of whether or not they are used. (And, of course, shelves should be private by default. I don’t understand why I keep having to explain this.)
