I checked against resu= lts when I first noticed the behavior. There isn=92t any status for electro= nic resources. I think you have something there.

 

Electronic resources d= o not have any availability status in our opac. This record for example htt= p://endeavor.molloy.edu/vwebv/holdingsInfo?bibId=3D183358 has a status of a= vailable online, however, that is a =93cheat=94 as it=92s a coding override and not a status within the opac. In essence a= ll of our ebooks have a call number ending with =91eb=92 =96 when voyager s= ees that it knows to a) suppress the call no and b) change the status messa= ge to read Available Online. IOW =96 in the exl_default skin this record would have zero items and a status of =93No i= nformation available=94. I hope that makes sense.

 

Can you advise how to = customize the display template and where it is located? I thought it might = have been mylist.phtml but I don=92t see where or how to modify to modify i= t.

 

Thank you,

Hi,

 

I noticed that electroni= c items I put into favorites show a status of =93checked out=94. As electro= nic resources, this is not possible and the record history in the voyager c= lient hasn=92t any inadvertent check outs. That=92s weird but it gets weirder (?).

 

It seems any electronic = resource =96 at least with random testing of three that I just did =96 once= put into favorites will show the red dot and the Checked Out message, howe= ver, when adding a PHYSICAL book that had a status of available, when I put that item type into favorites it still s= hows as available. I=92ll attach a shot of My Favorites.

 

Can someone tell me what= =92s going on here?
