Title-level hold on bib record (with multiple available copies) prevents renewal of the only copy currently checked out, citing it's needed for a hold.
We're running 2.9.0. A patron asked staff to renew an item. The renewal failed, with the typical message saying the copy was needed for a hold. Not unusual. Staff told them it couldn't be renewed. My extremely observant coworker later realized that we own 5 copies of this book under the same title (rare for us, but this is an old, local history book). One copy is in Reference, not holdable, but that still left 3 available copies. In addition, the hold request was already fulfilled by another copy and was waiting on the holds shelf. I placed two more title-level holds on this record, which both showed up in the pull list with the other available copies as the Current Copy. Current Copy Status Title Type 000115784 Waiting for Capture Kachemak Bay commu... T 000092639 Waiting for Capture Kachemak Bay commu... T 000081292 Ready for Pickup Kachemak Bay commu... T Still, when I tried to renew the only copy checked out, it failed. COPY_NEEDED_FOR_HOLD Barcode: 000115781 Copy is needed to fulfill a hold I have reproduced this issue with additional records, checking out one copy, placing a title hold (which targets a different copy), then renewal failure citing the checked out copy's barcode rather than the targeted copy's barcode (which would make sense to stop a renewal). Is anyone else seeing this? Sounds buggy, so I opened a report: https://bugs.launchpad.net/evergreen/+bug/1612807 Seemed similar to this old bug (https://bugs.launchpad.net/evergreen/+bug/1103706), but a fix was released in 2013: -Holly Holly Brennan Technology Specialist Homer Public Library Homer, Alaska hbren...@cityofhomer-ak.gov 907-435-3154 (direct) 907-235-3180 (main desk)
