Description Vitor Fernandes 2017-07-28 14:23:16 UTC
2 items with the same type but different loan status status - one available for loan, another for short term loan

The 2 items could be requested with different times for the same person on his home branch (same patron category, same branch code):

- the item available could be loaned for 2 weeks
- the item in the deposit could be loaned for 2 days

As the items have the same item type can not be differentiated in the issuing rules.
Comment 1 Vitor Fernandes 2017-07-28 14:28:09 UTC
One idea is add another control column for the issuing rule: loan_status (or something like that).

After that one issuing rule can be set/controlled by 4 codes:

- branchcode
- categorycode
- itemtype
- loan_status

Possible value for that column:

- Short term loan
- Long term loan
