What if a SP is created by accident or is no longer in use? Deleting SPs is challenging because of the various dependencies. Should we inactivate instead? What's the expected behavior in both cases for locations, requests and loans that use the SP?

Due date calculation


How do minimum guaranteed loan period, original due date, and recall return interval interact when an item has been recalled?

Stress case: using the recall return interval to extend any loan by X number of days may have the effect of _extending_ a loan, even on a non-renewable item

Proposed solutions

Workaround: Use recall return interval to set up the appropriate degree of generosity to the patron whose item has been recalled

Ideal (parking lot): Create a separate setting at the policy level (not tenant) to decide whether original due date or current date + recall return interval is used

Request notices

Question about whether the policies are containers for (loan, fee/fine, request) and a loan rule points to one container, or are the policies broken up and the circ rule points to individual policies
