    Why can expired patrons place requests?

    Question

    Why can expired patrons place requests, although they cannot checkout materials?

    Answer

    The ability to place a request by a user whose Patron Role has expired can be controlled with the switch check_for_expired_account.  When "true", requests can't be placed.

    Alternatively , if you were to remove the user’s patron role, or add a block, these users will not be able to place requests.
