The Self Issue tab relates to settings for the Self Issue function.

Note that the Self Issue facility bypasses all the normal loan controls, ie it allows users to loan or renew items even if:

  • there is a reservation on the item
  • the item is Reference Only
  • they have outstanding fines

This is based on the assumption that the user might take the item anyway, and it is better for it to be loaned so its location is known.

 

The wording for the Self Issue screens can also be amended, in System Management > Resource String Translations.
