    Can individual patrons opt out of retaining Loan History for "My Library Card"?

    I have been asked to look into the functionality that allows a patron to view his or her loan history. I see that the "My Library Card" functionality includes an Activity for "Loan History."

    If this feature were to be implemented, Is it possible to enable users to opt in and out?

    We could probably develop procedures to exclude individuals from our own "patron scrubbing" processing, but this seems a little unwieldy.

    There is no ability to opt in/out of the "My Library Card" Loan History display. All of the loans for a patron whose id has not been scrubbed will display.

    The only option, as you suggest, would be to exclude certain individuals from your "patron scrubbing" process.
