“Open Slot” Allotment- Each group can have no more than 3 “open slots” totaling no more than 12 hours at any given time.  If you want to schedule another slot, and you already have 3 “open slots” scheduled, you have to use up one of the “open slots” before you can request another scan slot.

“Free grab time” is from 9pm-7am Weekdays, and 5pm-9am Weekends.  If you schedule during this time it doesn’t count against your 3 “open slot” allotment.

You can request a scan slot within 24 hours of the scan (Example:  If you send the email request on Wednesday, asking for a Thursday slot.) it does not count against your 3 “open slot” allotment.  Email this request to the Bay 3 users list.

You can send an email request on a Friday, requesting a scan slot on Saturday or Sunday; it does not count against your 3 “open slot” allotment.  Email this request to the Bay 3 users list.

If you would like to be placed on the Bay 3 users e-mail list to receive last minute scheduling updates and scanner related information, send an e-mail to Linda Hood.
