"Place Hold" action now displays on variant records
Previously the "Place Hold action on variant records didj display as the configured level 2 fulfillment option, creating an inconsistent experience for users. After this release, users will see all configured fulifllment options on variant records.
OPAC status grid now displays in Italian language
Previously when logged into the OCLC Service Configuration with the selected language Italian, the OPAC status grid would not appear. Aftre this release, the OPAC status grid will display when viewing the interface in the Italian language.
Resolved the issue with incorrect display of Cover art
We have resolved an issue where the incorrect cover art was being displayed in WorldCat Discovery. This was particularly noticeable for institutions with large holdings of non-English language collections.
Selecting "Saved Items" in mobile environment now resolves appropriately to the "Saved Items" page
Users will no longer receive an error message when they select "Saved Items" under the resources tab in the mobile environment. When selecting "Saved Items" on a mobile device, the page will now resolve appropriately.
Search box generatior now honors "Libraries Worldwide" scope setting
Search results will now honor the "Libraries Worldwide" scope for the search box generator in OCLC Service Configuration. Previously, searches were ignoring this scope setting and pulling results from Level 1 holdings.
