Add record to shared bucket from embedded catalog.
Cataloging Committee had discussed the possibiity of using shared Record Buckets to track those that needed cleanup.  Because you can't add items to a bucket created by another library, it won't work until this feature is available.

Org unit is not a hold pickup library still allows selection as Preferred pickup location
When a location has an emergency/temporary closing, like Parkland did recently, when you turn off the location as a pickup library, patrons with it selected as default when they try to place a hold don't get an error message, it just doesn't do anything...

Unable to update Bib Source in MARC Edit screen

web client: type to select needed in patron stat cat dropdowns


We have VERY long lists of municipalities as patron statistical categories because of the need to track funding sources at many levels in our Commonwealth.  These lists are so long and the scrolling has become unmanageable, particularly for locations with many at the bottom of the list.

Bring parity to the estimated queue position in OPAC and Record -> View Holds UIs


patrons see an odd position in the holds queue because they are seeing a position that shows all copies in our SPARK Consortium, not just copies available at local libraries.  Some locations have used a customization to their OPAC template opac/parts/hold_status.tt2 in the area of lines 53-59 to use HTML comments that disable the display of the queue information.
