Update v1.10.0 April 2022

See the full changelog

Thanks to the precious collaboration of our users, several bugs have been identified and corrected in this April update which keeps consolidating the stability of the RERO ILS system for libraries using it in production. Some functional improvements have been added, notably the patron account in the public view which will allow a better management of the current loans and a sorting by expiry date. Finally, it is now possible to place requests for serial publications, even when individual issues are not listed in the system, which will facilitate the work at the circulation desks.

New features

Requesting an issue from a holding

Issues of a serial are not always recorded individually and are frequently summarized in plain text in the collection status. However, these issues must still be available for request, borrowing, or consultation. To facilitate the management and circulation of serials for which some or all copies are not individually recorded in the system, it is now possible to make a request directly from the holding resource.

When authorized by the circulation policy, this type of request allows the user to indicate the issue they wish to order (year, volume, number, pages). A temporary issue is automatically created to track each of these requests. This issue will be displayed in the professional interface and in the patron account but will remain hidden in the public view; once checked in, it is automatically deleted.
