With version 1.5 CollectiveAccess includes an optional Library Circulation module that supports a simple check in/check out workflow.

Set up

The module is be enabled once directives in /app/conf/app.conf and /app/conf/library_services.conf are set.

In /app/conf/app.conf:

#
# Library-style check-out of objects
#
enable_library_services = 1
enable_object_checkout = 1

And in /app/conf/library_services.conf:

checkout_types = {
	your_object_type_here = {
		default_checkout_period = +7 days,
		allow_override_of_due_dates = 1
	}
}

Once "checkout_types" is set with a valid code from the system list object_types, the Library menu and dashboard will become visible:

The main interface for the module is the Dashboard, which provides an overview of circulation activity. The Dashboard also includes a search box so that activity can be rendered for specific days or date ranges.

Check in and check outs contain their own menus.

There are several features outside of the module that facilitate the circulation workflow.

User Interfaces Tools

Several user interface bundles allow cataloguers to manage the circulation of items.
