When a reserved item is scanned in at our library, a reserve wrapper will print. It has the member's name on the spine and the pull date for its removal from the shelf, and member contact information on the front. It is wrapped around the book with a rubber band and placed on a shelf to which members of the public have access. The purpose of the wrapper is not only to identify the borrower but also to protect privacy - it is not obvious what my neighbor Mrs. Smith is checking out since the title is covered by the wrapper.
We process 70,000 reserves per year. That's 140 reams of paper. Do you have a successful means of identifying reserves that requires less paper and also protects member privacy?
