    Including patron sublibrary on the cir-04 loan report

    How can the patron sublibrary (the sublibrary listed under "Local patron information" in GUI Circ) be included in the cir-04 Loan Report? Will adding the z36_sub_library to ./form_eng/loan-report.xsl work?


    The z36_sub_library is not the patron sublibrary; it's the item sublibrary.

    If the z303_home_library (not a required field) is populated, that could be used. Or, if the patron has an actual sublibrary in bytes 13-17 of the z305_rec_key, that could be used. (Bytes 13-17 often have the xxx50 ADM library. In that case, the patron is not really associated with a particular sublibrary.)

    If the sublibrary at which the loan occurred is desired ... Z36-LOAN-CATALOGER-IP is connected to one *or more* sublibraries via $alephe_tab/server_ip_allowed. Translating this Z36-LOAN-CATALOGER-IP into a particular sublibrary could be difficult.
