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

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
