RE: ILL -- how to handle renewals

Carol -- that's interesting. So then even if someone checked it out on a
self check, the due date wouldn't change. Only a staff member could change
the due date. I like it!!! -- Thanks.

Subject: Re: ILL -- how to handle renewals
The trick we use is to allow two renewals of zero length. Our loan
rule for a 7-day ILL item looks like this -
09 > TIME REMAINING B4 RENEW 8
10 > FIRST RENEWAL PERIOD 0
11 > ADDITIONAL RENEWAL PERIOD 0
12 > MAX NUMBER OF RENEWALS 2
Allowing renewals lets you "change due date".
I think there are other tricks out there that might be better than this
one but it works for us.

For those of you who use Millennium ILL --
how do you handle the odd cases where you get permission from a
to extend someone's loan period when your system is set to not allow
be renewed? Is there any way to extend the due date of an item without
acting like a renewal?
