If I auto-request books and I go on vacation, do the items still autorequest? How does that work?

If a WL book becomes available while I am on vacation, do I still get the book? I have been waiting along time for some titles. How does this work?

Yes, if your WL is set to autorequest and you are on Vacation Hold, the system will automatically request the book for you.  Vacation Hold is just so that you don't get requests to send books out off of your shelf while you're away.

So, definitely make sure anything you don't want to lose out on is on autorequest before you go on vacation.  You might have some nice surprises waiting for you when you get home!

Great, thanks. Now I know how that works.

Surprise is the reversal of expectation. With PBS you never know when you will get a little surpise in the mail and email.
