Why is an item not automatically renewed?

Applies to
  • WorldShare Circulation

When automatic renewal is turned on, an item will not be renewed if:

  • The patron account has expired
  • The patron account is blocked
  • The patron account is in breach of policy, for example, other items are overdue
  • The loan limit has been exceeded, for example, an item has been renewed more times than allowed by Renew Time Limit
  • The loan limit has been exceeded via staff override, for example, staff acknowledged that the total loan value exceeds the limit when checking out a new item
  • The loan policy specifies a fixed bill for renewals
  • The item has been recalled
  • The item is needed to fulfill a hold or item schedule
