---- Reported by oleonard@myacpl.org 2004-08-06 03:51:54 ----

The OPAC virtual shelf system would be improved by allowing for storage of
description and comments information. I suggest the addition of a 'description'
column in the 'bookshelf' table so that shelf creators can describe the purpose
of the bookshelf (useful for teachers, for instance, who want to provide their
students with more information about the purpose or use of the list).  I also
suggest the addition of a 'description' or 'comments' column to the
'shelfcontents' table so that individual items on a virtual shelf can have
comments associated with them.

good idea, could be done after 2.2.0 official release as it requires new DB
field(s), and i don't want to modify DB structure during 2.2.0RC process

I got asked for this kind of thing last summer and then again yesterday. Would be an awesome enhancement even though this is a super-old bug :)

I think we all agree that we could add many fields in shelves.
For example : opening date / closing date (non mandatory).

Sponsoring welcomed ;-)

I am taking the liberty of upating the title of this bug in accordance with our preferred naming of this feature. :-)

In Bug 12461 - Add patron clubs feature, Kyle introduced functionality to have custom fields in club templates. Each template can define additonal fields. It works great.

Maybe something similar could be done here?
