---- Reported by oleonard@myacpl.org 2003-04-24 10:01:27 ----

If the user presses the 'back' button after placing a reserve, a duplicate
reserve can be entered.

After the 'place reserve' button in opac-reserve.pl is pressed the user is
forwarded to opac-user.pl.  At this point the user can click the back button and
then click the 'place reserve' button again.

The solution would be to put another check for duplicates into the process at
this point.

Is there a scenario in which someone would want a duplicate reserve?

People do want duplicate reserves eg library satff who want all copies to make 
some change. And users who want both the April and May copies of X magazine.

So is it really a problem?  if someone makes a second reserve, do they go to a 
page that then shows they have 2 reserves?  

I wouldn't like to actually stop people legitimately making more than one 
reserve - but it would be good to make sure they know they've done it, and give 
them the tools to cancel one if they wish to.

Earlier in the reserve process the patron is blocked from placing a duplicate
reserve.  After clicking a 'request' link in the OPAC, a logged-in patron will
receive a message stating 'You already have a reserve placed on this item'
(default template).

This is with a single-item title (sample data).  If anything, the process should
be consistent.  If it prevents duplicate reserves at the first stage, it should
prevent them at a later stage.

Multiple reservations might be better made a privilege of librarian users.
