2.2. Copy Status is Available Flag

Statuses now have a flag to indicate whether or not an item in a particular status is actually available. The statuses that have been set to “Is Available” for 2.12 are Available, Reshelving, Onsite Consultation, On Display, and Reserves.

There are two behaviour changes for Onsite Consultation, On Display, and Reserves. Checking out an item in these statuses will no longer result in a COPY NOT AVAILABLE alert for staff. Items using these statuses that are not allowed to be checked out should have the Circulate flag set to False at the copy or shelving location level.

These statuses will appear in catalogue searches when a patron selects Limit to Available.
