More flexibility in options for the way Evergreen fills holds

The full projects details are available at http://blog.esilibrary.com/2012/04/16/sharing-code-is-caring/. Two options that this enhancement will cover include:

  • The ability for a consortium to set priority for holds to be filled at the item's owning library instead of the checkin library.
  • The ability to send a title home (if there is a waiting hold) after x number of circs.

Currently, we cannot weight fields in a keyword search without breaking functionality that allows us to exclude search terms. Read more »
