    Putting block on additional renewals when 3-renewal limit has been reached

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

    Currently, we allow patrons 3 renewals per book title for titles in regular loan.
    Is there any way we can place a block on either the book or the patron when the 3-renewal limit has been reached?

    When tab_check_circ has these lines:

    RENEW check_circ_3
    RENEW-WWW check_circ_3
    X-RNW check_circ_3

    tab16, col. 21 "Maximum renewals", is checked. If this renewal would exceed the maximum, then the following message (./error_eng/check_circ: 0161) is displayed and the renewal is blocked:

    Renewal limit reached - No. of renews: $1 Limit: $2.
