The American Library Association (ALA) has taken a proactive position by forming the Center for the Future of Libraries. The Center’s goal is to identify emerging trends of libraries, librarians and surrounding communities. Working with librarians across the United States, the Center’s information and data has worked to direct future innovations and plans.
A common question I hear from libraries is, “What is the difference between Retry and Unfilled?” The difference is subtle but important.
Retry means that the Borrower’s request has been submitted to all lenders in the Lender List and could not be filled by any of them, at this time.
