I've been asked to prepare for closing our libraries due to COVID-19 -- what I'd have to adjust in Sierra. So all locations, not just one location temporarily (as described in https://csdirect.iii.com/documentation/tempclose.php and https://listserv.iii.com/read/messages?id=486303). Does anyone on the list have something like that already prepared? The things that come to mind...
Extend due dates until after we reopen
Notices - we run bills and overdues manually -
Clear holdshelf - we run this manually and have problems if not cleared
Do I have to adjust all the loan rules/rules for requesting so nothing can be placed on hold or just let that be, allow for holds?
I'm blanking at the moment so hoping someone has this info./has dealt with this before (extended weather closing for example).
