    * Primo uses the same service for both active and historic loans.
    * The number of loans to request (no_loans) is defined in the ILS Gateway sub-system > ILS Templates Parameters table > Chunk Size parameter.
    * The default number of loans is 200. If the goal is to raise this number, please test the change for performance.
    * Deleted loans ARE NOT included.
    * Past or "historic" ILL loans ARE listed.
    * The DLF process is able to return up to 990 past loans.
    * The Primo setting is NOT related to the Aleph www_z36h_max_record_limit setting (default 80) which defines the maximum number of Z36H (Loan History) records displayed in the OPAC's User Information > Loan History list. The maximum setting for this variable is 9999 (the length of the variable in Aleph code). The following default message appears in the Aleph Web OPAC (given www_z36h_max_record_limit setting = 100): “100 loans out of a total of 148 loans are listed. A full list can be viewed at the Circulation Desk.“
    * If the sort is by Due Date and multiple Due Dates are the same, then the loans are sorted by an arbitrary internal system order.
