Dawn,

In case it hasn't already been mentioned, you can create those 3 statuses in Evergreen and use them like you were doing in Sierra.

    Hi Dawn,

    I also wanted to provide some explanation on  the use for the
    reserves statuses you mentioned.

    The reserves status is something that is used for academic course
    reserves.

    On reservation shelf is something that's used in conjunction with
    the booking module. It's basically the 'on the holds' shelf
    equivalent for items that are booked for a specific time period.

    I hope this helps!

    Kathy

    Hi Dawn,

    Our libraries do not change the status of the item when a patron
    asks for the item to be set aside for them.  Most of our
    libraries place a Hold for the patron, check in the item, and
    place it on the Holds Shelf.

        Hi,

        We will be moving from Sierra to Evergreen this October.
        Presently, when a patron asks us to put an item which is on
        the shelf aside for them, we change the item status to "Main
        Lib hold", "Branch 1 hold" or "Branch 2 hold". These statuses
        reflect our 3 branches and help in searches for the items.
        There is no fee charged to the patron for this service. When
        we check the item out to the patron, the system prompts us to
        clear the hold status.

        I see in Evergreen that there are 2 statuses which contain
        the word "Reserve". Does anyone use these for held items
        which don't have the "On Holds shelf" designation? Also, does
        anyone have a way to show which branch has the item?

        Thanks,
