I know that the fact that every book is now available has presented its own challenges along with the opportunities - and I'm hoping that in time different algorithms can be explored when filling the service queue. Right now it appears to be more "science" than "art".
It looks like the software is going systematically by subject through the most recent books, first. The problem is that NLS very often produces many books by the same author with adjacent book numbers, meaning that the same authors are coming up for everyone whether they have an interest or not.
Turnaround was so lovely - a recently returned book was likely one that another patron might want, and it was prioritized to go back out to someone else. What if KLAS were to look at recently requested books or recently checked in books as higher in priority?
I know that there is likely no perfect formula, I've just been getting more complaints as of late with the current crop of books.
Thank you for your consideration!
