That is about it, no real home base for the collection and as one branch gets crowded can send groupings to one that needs more. Probably is a system thing, but wondering if any libraries are doing this now>

Isn't that really a systems issue? You know like system design and then
implementation through software and materials transport and the like?

I'm assuming that you mean that items can be requested from any branch where
they happen to be and transferred to that branch? And the items stay there
(and are checked out to patrons there) until requested by a different

I'm looking at your situation as a systems designer/programmer, since that's
my approach to analysis, but if you provide a more thorough description of
the scenario involved maybe I or someone with an appropriate knowledge base
can help.
