    How can patrons request multiple copies of the title?

    For example, a graduate student is preparing to perform in a play. She wants to get two copies of the play: one for herself, and one for whoever will be reading for the other role (or roles). How can she request both items?


    "enable_request_during_loan_for_different_ policy" can support request of multiple copies, but the loan terms of use can't be identical.

    The documentation says:

    Indicate "true" to enable patrons to request an item belonging to a bibliographic record for which the patron already has an item on loan, if the newly requested item has a different loan period policy than the original item.
