Support ItemRequested to Create a Borrowing Request in NCIP v1.0
Alma now creates a borrowing request when a broker system sends an ItemRequested message to the borrowing institution. This functionality already exists for NCIP v2.0. For more information, see Broker-based Resource Sharing in the Developer Network.
Additional Resource Sharing Enhancements
- Alma now supports the use of a general message for NCIP-P2P borrowing and lending requests. See Sending a General Message With a Resource Sharing Request.
- Idea Exchange: A Partner column was added to the Resource Sharing Lending Requests Task List page.
- Idea Exchange: The borrowing request statuses code table is now available for customization and translation. The customized values are displayed in Primo and in the requests list on the Patron Services page. The code table can be accessed from Configuration Menu > Fulfillment > Resource Sharing > Borrowing Request Statuses. See Configuring Borrowing Request Statuses.
- Idea Exchange: On the Shipping Interface, the Automatically print slip now defaults to Yes. The user's check box selection persists during the session. See Shipping Items.
