We have built our flexible loans system to take into account known demand for items. If there are lots of requests on an item and we have a queue of people who want to use it, then the item will only issue for two days to each user because we know others are waiting. If the queue gets large then we will purchase extra copies too. Remember that as soon as you have had your turn with the item you can request it again and put yourself back in the queue.
