Following a comment from a campus, we were able to improve functionality in OneSearch by increasing patron account checks for renewability.* What does this mean for you? Items on loan that are not renewable (because they are on hold for another patron) now say so in your patron account!
Prior to this fix, all active loans displayed as “Renewable,” even if they were currently on hold for other patrons (and, thus, not eligible for renewal). This is a minor improvement but one whose effects will be felt immediately by those who borrow library items and rely on OneSearch to provide accurate renewal statuses in order to renew them.
* Interested in the technical details? They are outlined in this Ex Libris Knowledge Center article: Primo-Aleph API: Items that are not renewable are displayed as status “renewable”.
