New features and enhancements

LHR Item Count measure added to the LHR Item Detail Universe

The LHR Item Count measure represents the item count of local holdings records.

LHR Item Count

One potential use case for this measure is to count the number of LHRs that have duplicate barcodes by creating a custom report using the LHR Item Barcode and LHR Item Count field. Other objects can be added based on user needs and preferences.

Three objects added to the Acquisitions Universe

Three new objects have been added to the Acquisitions Universe. All three are contained in the Copy folder.

New Acquisitions Universe objects

Copy Number

The copy number is a unique value that identifies a specific copy of an order item. For example, if an item was ordered with a quantity of 5, there would be five copy numbers (e.g., PO-2018-318-1-1, PO-2018-318-1-2, PO-2018-318-1-3, etc.). For more information, see Search by and view copy number.

Withdrawn User

The Withdrawn User object represents the full name of the user who withdrew a copy of an item from the collection within Acquisitions. For more information, see Withdraw an item.

Withdrawn Date

The Withdrawn Date object represents the date a specific copy of an item was withdrawn from the collection within Acquisitions. For more information, see Withdraw an item.

Nonbibliographic Item Title in the Acquisitions Universe

Prior to this release, the title field for nonbibliographic items was blank. Following this release, the title for these items will be populated by the item description. This is most apparent in the Title Copy Detail Report.

Last Paid Date folder and its contents deprecated from the Acquisitions Universe

The Last Paid Date folder and its contents have been deprecated from the Acquisitions Universe. This field is no longer maintained in the Acquisitions Module.

Five new objects added to the Circulation Events Universe

Five new objects have been added to the Circulation Events Universe. These objects will make it possible to report on data from an external system, such as WorldShare ILL, Tipasa, XFL, Relais, and Acquisitions, when integrated with WorldShare Circulation.

More information regarding Circulation integration can be found at the links below.

The External Request Role is a value that indicates if the library was the borrower (REQUESTER) or lender (SUPPLIER) for the interlibrary loan or other external request.

Other considerations

Ability to hide files previously downloaded from My Files

An install scheduled for 06 December 2018 will allow My Files users to hide files that they have previously downloaded, thus improving efficiencies for locating those files that still need attention. Please Note: The default behavior is the checkbox is enabled.  Please see the Download a file for more information.
