Hi Holly, A quick test indicates that -1 yields a *higher* priority than 0, so Thomas's suggestion of setting to 1 should do the trick for the priority. As pointed out in irc, though, the staff holds would still block renewals.
I assume this would not be the case if the library setting "Block Renewal of Items Needed for Holds" is set to false. -Michele -- Michele M.
