about those Oscar hold queues

March 9, 2010

Oscar,  Oscar, Oscar…oh the havoc you wreak.  Each year Oscar nominations are announced and hold queues build as people scramble to see the films that everyone is talking about at the water cooler.  As you help customers place holds on these items you’ll notice significant hold queues on some of these titles.

Inglourious Basterds  479 holds

The Hurt Locker 455 holds.

The Blind Side  277 holds

If customers ask about wait times please let them know that additional copies of all the Oscar nominees were ordered yesterday (March 8th).  I picked up enough additional copies of each to not only bring the holds to copy ratio back into line today but to have the ratio correct when they arrive on library hold shelves.  The DVD holds to copy ratio is 5 to 1.
