How can we improve Alma?

[Alma] - ILL Resource Sharing - allow pickup location other than RS Library for Physical non-returnable requests

Right now Borrowing Request type "Physical non-returnable", which is the one used for document delivery (tipycally a printed copy of an article), allows to choose only the Resource Sharing Library as Pickup Location.

This is a problem, since a user is instead willing to choose the library where the printed copy should be delivered. This is particularly useful when libraries are geographically sparse.

Using a temporary item does not help, since in this case we don't have an item that must be returned (and shipped back to the lender, as it is in the ILL of a book). The user gets and keeps a printed copy: there is no return step.

Therefore please allow to choose a Pickup Location also for Borrowing Request type "Physical non-returnable", exactly as it is for Request type "Physical".
