    Question

    In the Primo "Get It" tab, why is it that in some situations, non-signed in users see "Loanable", and signed-in see "Not Loanable"? 

    How is the Loan Policy displayed in Primo calculated?

    Answer

    The loan policy is calculated as follows:

     

    • For guest users:
      • If there is at least one rule that has a loanable policy, the label is coming from: Fulfillment Configuration Menu > Discovery Interface Display Logic > Labels > c.uresolver.getit2.item_list.circulating. By default, the text is "Loanable".
      • Otherwise the label is coming from: Fulfillment Configuration Menu > Discovery Interface Display Logic > Labels > c.uresolver.getit2.item_list.non_circulating. By default, the text is "Not loanable".
    • For signed in users:
      • If the item is found to be loanable to the user, the text is identical to the "Due Date" Loan Policy description.
      • If it is not loanable, the text is again taken from: c.uresolver.getit2.item_list.non_circulating.

    Additional Information

    What is the logic here? 

    When the user is not authenticated, Alma can't predetermine if an item is loanable.  Often the Loan terms of use are sensitive to user information, such as User Group. Alma isn't able to determine with certainty which TOU would be used, for Guest users in Primo.
