hold request on newly acquired material
Is there some way to address this problem: When new materials for a TV series are suggested, the person who makes the suggestion is placed number one in the queue. It often happens that others also make a request for the series before the material is actually acquired by the library. TV series usually come in more than one disc for a season. Once the material arrives, the number one person in the queue is first but only for the first disc. After that, every other disc in the season has to be requested individually. Curiously, when the first person is notified that the first disc is available, the other discs already have a queue. Is there a way for each person in the original queue to maintain their place for the sequential discs once the library acquires the series? I guess it would work something like a freeze where the each person in the original queue can maintain their precedence for all discs in the season. For example: I believe I was the first to suggest acquiring Waking the Dead, season nine. I was 1 of 3 until the material arrived. The season is broken into 3 discs. I received notice for disc 1, but it appears discs 2 and 3 are on the hold shelf for others. In this case I am next in line for both those discs but in other cases, with more people awaiting arrival of a series, I could be due for a much longer wait for the additional discs. I hope I have explained the situation well enough.
