Comment: biblio_site_feature_suggestion - For holds, add a definition of "suspend" as opposed to "cancel". How could suspend be used by someone who wants to get that book, but just not yet.

Answer

Hi!

Thanks for sharing your suggestion! This is an excellent idea.

You can find a little additional information about suspending holds here: http://help.bibliocommons.com/005borrowing/005holds/

If you suspend a hold by checking the box next to it then clicking "Suspend" the hold will move to a separate tab (labeled "Suspended").  When you are ready for that item, you'll go to the Suspended tab, check the box next to your item, and click "Activate."

One thing to note about suspended holds:  they only last for a year after your original hold request. If there is an item that you want to get, but won't be checking out for a year or more, I'd recommend putting it on your "For Later" shelf. 

Please let me know if I can clarify any of this.
