July Evergreen patches

  • Patron preferred names:
    • If a patron has a preferred name on their account, it will display more prominently in both the patron summary (for staff) and in the OPAC (for the patron's login).
  • Accessible field labels:
    • Patron search and edit interfaces now include accessible field labels for use by screen readers.
  • Metarecord searches:
    • Metarecord searches now display search results. This means that you can now use the "Group Formats/Editions" checkbox.
  • "Show more details":
    • "Show more details" is now an option. The first five holdings records will display when this option is selected. Your preferred library's holdings will display at the top.
  • Preferred library holdings:
    • If you have a preferred library set, the count of that library’s holdings will always be displayed in search results. You will no longer have to select a specific search library and check the “Results from All Libraries” box. Instead, you can simply perform a search with OWWL set as your search library and you should be shown an indicator for both the number of items available across the system (4/4 @ OWWL) and the number of items available at your preferred library (0/0 @ PLSHQ).
  • Item Table grid preferences:
    • You should now be able to save your column / field preferences for the Item Table on bibliographic record detail pages.
  • "Place Hold" catalog interface:
    • The "Place Hold" catalog interface now respects your catalog preferences (for preferred library, number of results, etc.).
  • Hold notes and staff notifications:
    • Hold notes and staff notifications can now be added to holds directly from "View Holds" within a bibliographic record.
  • View Holds grid preferences:
    • You can now select the hold’s "Status" column / field on the Holds Table in bibliographic records and save your preferences.
  • Shift+Click to select rows:
    • Now, you can use Shift and click to select multiple rows in some tables in the new staff catalog.
