    Display of Due Date in Aleph ("After Recall ...")

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 20

    The Date Due for a checked out item, under "availability" in Aleph holdings, displays as (e.g.):
    03/19/10 - After Recall: 12/09/09

    In Aleph 18, this would display simply as:

    To eliminate the "After Recall: mm/dd/yy":

    > cp -p $aleph_root/error_eng/format_due_date $alephe_root/error_eng/format_due_date

    and then make the following change in the $alephe_root/error_eng/format_due_date. Change:

    0110 0000 L $1 - After Recall: $2


    0110 0000 L $1

    And then restart the www_server.

    [The "After Recall" is intended to indicate to patrons what the "estimated" due-date would be if they *were* to place a recall.)
