Bedford P.L. hosts one of the Three Cups of Tea kits, which is in VERY high demand at this time. Emily Weiss tells me that the kit is booked through the fall and she is refusing all NHU-PAC requests. But, she also wants to add requesting libraries to her holds list if they want to be added, so, this requires her following up on the refused request. This is quite a bit of extra work, so she is asking that those who wish to borrow the kit to contact her directly, and to NOT go through the NHU-PAC at this time.
Emily asked the RTG committee if it has another way of handling requests. Good question. We believe the system as it has been set up works for most, BUT, we are open to discussing the issue. We have arranged to have a slot at the upcoming NHLA spring conference to meet with librarians to discuss RTG problems and solutions. Information will be forthcoming. If you are not able to partake in our discussion, please send your questions/concerns/comments directly to me:
