We designed KLAS' Patron Centric Cartridge functionality to provide library staff with the ability to quickly select and reproduce a specific set of books onto a cartridge for a specific patron.

While this works well for many libraries, we know this is not the best option for ALL organizations. In fact, we identified at least three different workflow options in our the "Duplication on Demand: What works best for you?" Key Notes blog post.

We need your input as we move forward with creating additional duplication-on-demand functionality within KLAS to questions such as:
  1. Do any of these workflow options appeal to your organization and how it operates more than another?
  2. What considerations do you think need to be made for each?
  3. What specific challenges and / or benefits do you think you may see from operating under each?

In connections with Drea's question 2, something that has come up in our discussions here is the matter of cartridge labels.

Scenario 1, with each cartridge paired to a specific patron, allows cartridges to be labeled with that patron's name. However, that may not scale as more patrons are served using PCC (especially those patrons that like to come and go frequently, or who will only be on the service for a short time).

How important is cartridge labeling to your patrons? What is the value of having patron-specific information on the cartridge label, vs having generic PCC labels?
