Bug fixes

Refund button now available for closed requests

Prior to this release, the Refund button for Interlibrary Loan Fee Management (IFM) was not available for closed requests. The button now displays for closed requests that are eligible for a refund, that is, requests for which an IFM debit has occurred but no refund credit has been given.
