Subject: [OPEN-ILS-GENERAL] Upcoming development projects from MassLNC
MassLNC is considering a handful of development projects to fund over the
coming months. The
projects are listed below.
I'm sharing these projects with the community to see if anyone has feedback on
general concept behind the projects or the proposed
implementations. Also, if anyone is already working on one of these projects,
or a similar one, please let me know so that we don't duplicate efforts. I also
have a specific question on the first listed project.
* Improvements for Hopeless Holds - http://masslnc.org/node/3388 - this
project would provide a new interface for managing hopeless holds. In the
current description, we identify hopeless holds as ones that do not have copies
in the hold_copy_map. However, we do have at least one site that has holdable
statuses that they would want to show up as hopeless holds. Our current
requirements don't cover this use case, but I wanted to throw the idea out
there in case anyone had ideas of a way to incorporate those with little
* Update hold information when patron contact information is updated -
http://masslnc.org/node/3388 - this project would prompt staff and the public
to update holds contact information when phone and SMS numbers are updated in
their record and in their hold preferences.
* Test notification method - http://masslnc.org/node/3377 - an easy way
for staff or patrons to test the e-mail or SMS number on their account.
* Support for inventory date - http://masslnc.org/node/3379 - the
addition of some inventory-related fields to the copy could help libraries
performing inventory. It could be added to a copy at checkin through the use of
a checkin modifier or from the item status page.
* Improvements to Deletion of Serials Items -
http://masslnc.org/node/3383 - When deleting these items, linked copies will be
removed and summary statements will be updated.
* Improvements to Spine Label printing - http://masslnc.org/node/3386 -
specifically, support for sheet label printing.
