      options for title list        available for the status display in the Results List. In particular, when the
      search results                item has a status of Discharged, it may not yet be available on the shelf.
                                    They do not want the title status to display as Available in this situation.
                                    The item statuses displaying on the search results screen do not seem to
                                    have many options compared to the Classic version (in opac.ini).
                                    Consequently the statuses are showing inconsistent with the holdings
                                    statuses showing in the record view. In the file,
                                    there are only two lines available for displaying item statuses:
                                    page.searchResults.item.status.unavailable=not available Is there any
                                    other option that we could display to make the search results page
                                    consistent with the record view page? Example: on our test server,
                           1. search by keyword, gone with the wind
                                    2. on the results screen, see the item # 4. The status shows as "Available"
                                    but when you see the record itself, the holdings information indicates
                                    that it is "discharged". We used to set it to "Returned" on the search
                                    results screen in Webvoyage Classic.

                                 of selecting the date and the time the item is due or was returned.
                                 However, the system doesn't seem to check that this date and time
                                 combination is within the circulation calender range for the current

                                 enter in a date it seems to be happy with that despite the date being well
                                 and truly out of normal acceptable date ranges. In theory the date
                                 selected should govern the time as well ie if you pick a date then the
                                 closing time for that date in the circ calendar for the circ location should
                                 be the upper range default rather than 11:59pm/am.

                                Of course it can be done with macros (keyboard and mouse) but it is one
                                command more to remember. It would be user-friendly to get this
                                possibility directly in the Remote-search. When you want to select all
                                databases at once you have to click then one by one. Some times if you
                                tried to select them quickly you have to click same database twice to get
                                it selected. Currently it is not possible to select all databases together in

                                This costs staff extra time and exhaust your mouse hand.

                                   the patron wants, because the items are not sorted on any reasonable
                                   order. If the items could be sorted by clicking the title bar (Location, Item
                                   type, Item status, Enum, Chron, Copy, Barcode), the same way the
                                   charged items on the Patron Charged items index screen, it would be easy
                                   to find the issue. To be able to sort the individual items by clicking the
                                   column title would save a lot of time of the patron and of the staff.

74    Ability to print item      Need ability to print item record. Staff frequently need to note
      record.                    information from an item record. This must either be done by hand, or
                                 the library must purchase screen capture software. Bibs and mfhds can
                                 be easily printed; items should have the same capability. If I display an
                                 item record of something I need to check on the shelf, I must record by
                                 hand the enumeration, chronology, and barcode, or purchase and use
                                 screen capture software. With library funds severely limited, purchasing
                                 screen capture software is not always an option. Thus hand writing of the
                                 information in an item record, and the staff time involved, is the only way
                                 to record the needed information. Manual recording of item record
                                 information takes needless staff time. Manual recording of barcodes is
                                 particularly prone to error.

75    Improve workflows by        Need ability to return to a list of mfhds and/or item records. If a bib
      better navigation           record has multiple mfhds, or a mfhd has multiple itmes, one of which is
      between and across lists    displayed, staff cannot then return to the list of mfhds or item records to
      of mfhds and items          select a different one without repeating multiple steps. Alternatively, the
                                  hierarchy could be displayed, but the hierarchy does not show the
                                  barcode number and cannot be printed. When working with multiple
                                  item records, it is also often necessary to rearrange the order of the item
                                  records in the list display; the this cannot be done in the hierarchy.
                                  Selecting a single mfhd or item from th hierarchy requires unhighlighting
                                  the previously selected item or mfhd, highlighting another, and clicking
                                  retrieve; double clicking the desired mfhd or item does not work. Since
                                  multiple tasks are performed from the list of item records, and selection
                                  is simpler from these lists, staff need to be able to return to them in one
                                  step. If a bib and mfhd have multiple item records, the list of item records
                                  is displayed by clicking Get Items; one is chosen and displayed. If another
                                  item record is desired, staff must close the displayed item record,
                                  returning to the bib or mfhd, and again choose Get Items, redisplay the
                                  list of item records, and choose another one. This must be repeated every
                                  time one of the item records is desired for display. The ability to return to
                                  the list of mfhds is similarly desirable. Constantly returning to the bib or
                                  mfhd to reselect additional mfhds or items consumes needless staff

93    Allow relinking holdings At the moment there is no functionality for relinking holdings and item
      and item records through records via BatchCat. This functionality is fundamental to the kind of
      BatchCat                 automated cataloguing that BatchCat is designed for, and would allow
                               BatchCat to fully mirror the functionality available in the Cataloguing
                               client. It would be particularly useful for automated deduplication of
                               bibliographic records in databases, which is a high priority for us, and I
                               believe for other libraries. The envisaged functions would work along the
                               lines of: my $mfhd_result=$batchcat->RelinkHoldingRecord($mfhd_id,
                               $old_bib_id, $new_bib_id); my $item_result=$batchcat-
                               >RelinkItemRecord($item_id, $old_mfhd_id, $new_mfhd_id); Having the
                               old record id (i.e. the link to break) as well as the new record id (i.e. the
                               link to make) would allow us to deal with bound-withs in an automated
                               way (i.e. if the old record id was set to 0, the old link is left intact and the
                               new link created, thus forming a bound-with).

                                  search for check in title Annual Review, 56 records are returned. It would
                                  be far more efficient if staff could simply search directly by Bib ID.

105   Add ability to search bib   Not possible to search bibliographic records by the cataloger's operator
      records by cataloger_s      id It should be possible to search bibliographic records by the cataloger's
      operator ID                 operator id. When a newcomer or a trainee is cataloging, the main
                                  cataloger could more easily control the bibliographic records that he or
                                  she has done to check the possible mistakes. The less mistakes in the
                                  bibliographic records, the easier to search and find relevant references.
                                  Now you have to use Access reports to do the same thing.

111   Titles with diacritics      Since the upgrade to Unicode, voy01 patch we have noticed an issue with
      should be searchable in     searchng titles in Serials check-in. The example is: Sot[ligature first
      the serials check-in        half]s[ligature second half]ial[soft sign, prime] Note: Customer included
      window.                     the diacritic in square brackets It is the soft sign prime character that is
                                  causing the problem. In serials check in to bring the record up you must
                                  search with a space ; Sotsial no If you truncate to Sotsialno, the record
                                  does not come up as a match. There may be another diacritic which does
                                  the same thing but customer is waiting on a report Also the macron in
                                  Arabic is causing this problem. If you search for Majallat J in serials check-
                                  in, you get quite a list but try Majallat jam you get nothing The macron is
                                  between the j and a in the second word.

135   There should be a System    Want a System Fine/Fee reason of Overdue Recall separate from regular
      Fine/Fee for Overdue        Overdue. The matrix allows you to set different fine rates for regular
      Recall in addition to       overdue and recall overdue items, but both types of fines display in
      Overdue.                    Circulation with the "Overdue" Fine/Fee reason. When patrons have
                                  questions or complaints about their fines, we'd like to be able to tell them
                                  exactly why they were fined the amount they were. For all patron groups,
                                  we charge higher fines for overdue recalls than for regular overdue items.
                                  Sometimes a patron will question the amount of their fine, and
                                  circulation staff would like to be able to tell if the fine was for a regular
                                  overdue item or an overdue recalled item. We sometimes waive overdue
                                  fines, but we never waive recall fines, so it would be nice to tell if a
                                  patron was fined for an overdue item or an overdue recall. Currently, if a
                                  patron returns an overdue recalled item, then receives a bill for their
                                  overdue fine and comes in with questions about that fine, circulation
                                  staff can't easily tell whether or not the fine was for a recalled item.

sisältää sellaisen piirteen, jota varmasti kaikissa kirjastoissa
haluttaisiin. Eli kaikista lainatuista kirjoista (kyseisellä
lainauskerralla) saisi vain yhden kuitin, eikä jokaisesta kirjasta
omaansa. (Ehdotus on tosin muotoiltu niin, että siinä
pyydetään ensin mahdollisuutta lisätä vapaamuotoinen teksti
lainalistauksen loppuun... ja sitten pyydetään vaihtoehtoisesti
sitä, minkä ainakin minä haluaisin ensisijaiseksi toiveeksi, että
lainattaessa useita teoksia niistä saisi vain yhden kuitin
nykyisen ritirimpsun sijasta.)

Lainauksen Override-tilanteessa eräpäivien pitäisi myös
noudattaa lainauskalentereita. Nyt eräpäiväksi voi syöttää
periaatteessa mitä tahansa, myös kaukana menneisyydessä
olevan päivämäärän, jolle ei ole kalenteriakaan olemassa. Näin
niteen saa totaalisen jumiin, koska sitä ei voi palauttaa ennen
kuin on hyväksyttävä kalenteri olemassa systeemissä. Samaten
asiakas joutuu heti lainakieltoon seuraavana yönä ja saa
mahdollisesti reippaat sakot.

Kursori ei ole lainaustilannetta aloittaessa oletusarvoisesti
asiakkaan viivakoodi-kentässä, vaan kirjastojen valikossa.Olisi
erittäin hyvä parannus, jos oletuspaikka kursorilla olisi valmiiksi
asiakkaan kortin viivakoodikenttä.
