Delinquent Patron Maintenance Tip
Have a long delinquent patron clear their account finally? If the patron no longer wishes or is eligible for service, we recommend that you consider updating the privilege expiry date to the date the account was cleared. Our automated patron purge script evaluates both the user status and the expiry date. When the bills are paid, if the privilege expiration date is more than 3 years prior and the patron is otherwise in good standing, the account will be deleted within approximately 24 hours. If you anticipate any follow-up interactions related to the bills, updating the expiry date will hold the account in an inactive but accessible status.
The elections have opened for the Executive and Patron Services Committees. We are accepting exclusively electronic ballots for PSC. Physical ballots for the Executive Committee have been mailed via the USPS to libraries who had not already submitted them. Please be sure to register your library’s votes before May 25, 2015!
