Loan Limit Matrix

Use this screen to apply loan limit policies to patron types and items.

Processing order

  1. When an item is checked out, the system evaluates all rows in the matrix for any matches.
  2. If the system finds one or more matches, it determines whether any loan limits (loan count, loan value, renew time) have been exceeded.
  3. If one or more loan limits have been exceeded, the reason(s) will be displayed in an Acknowledgement window. Depending on your account type, you will need to override or acknowledge the message in order to allow the circulation transaction.

It is recommended to have a row to cover all patron types, material formats, branches, and locations.
