About transaction history
The system retains circulation transactions (check ins, check outs, etc.) related to items and patrons when transaction history is stored. This setting is optional and must be activated in OCLC Service Configuration (WorldShare Circulation > Admin/General > History). For more information on storing history, see History.
Transaction history is stored:
- In the Transaction History section of the Item Details screen (item transaction history)
- In the History tab of a patron account (patron transaction history)
For information on available reports, see Circulation reports.
