Correctional Facility hold policies

Correctional Facilities are prevented from requesting New Video and New Item materials.


Correctional Facilities place their own holds and renew items via the OPAC. Other circulation tasks are handled by PLSHQ. Please refer any questions to PLS Outreach Services.

When Correctional Facility holds are captured by member libraries, they will be routed to PLSHQ for processing.

Correctional Facility loans are returned to PLSHQ and then routed to the owning library or other hold destination.

Lost Material bills and payments

When materials borrowed by Correctional Facilities become overdue to the point of being made lost, bills are sent from PLSHQ. PLSHQ invoices, receives, and processes all lost material payments; checks for lost materials payments are cut by PLSHQ and disbursed to member libraries, lost materials bills are cleared from the Correctional Facilities' user accounts by PLS.
