Hi Jordan, Thank you for this information. I am talking about the Circulation Library setting in the item record as opposed to the library that actually circulated the item. The terminology always seems to create confusion. I wish it weren’t so.

If your library does not have a holds limit then your patrons are free to place as many holds as they wish, both at your library and other libraries in you resource sharing situation. Same with checkout. I am not sure it there is an option to change this in evergreen or not. Our library is in a consortium of 13 other libraries and in the beginning decided to let each others polices dictate checkout limits instead. I am a bit confused though. If the Circulation library and the Owning library are the same then are we not talking about one library.

I know the policy is applied to the Owning Library, but I was wondering how it would work in a resource sharing situation. Say Library X has a Circulation Limit of 5 DVDs and Library Y has no circulation limits at all. A patron at Library Y places a hold on seven DVDs that are fulfilled by Library X and sent to Library Y for pickup. Is the patron at Library Y prevented from checking out DVD’s 6 and 7 or are Library X’s limits not in force at Library Y even though Library X owns the items? Conversely, if a patron at Library X tries to check out twelve of Library Y’s DVDs, will they be able to? Let’s assume, for the sake of simplicity, that the Circulation Library and the Owning Library are the same in all of these items. Thank you in advance for helping me with this.
