How can we improve Primo?

Display item policy in item record

It would be useful if item policy could be configured as a field to display in either the brief or full item display. Currently, the loanable indicator is defined by the fulfillment terms of use, which is dependent on users signing in in order for Primo to calculate the loan policy specifically for that user.

Having the option to display the item policy from Alma as a field in Primo would be beneficial as this does not change dependent on the user type or fulfillment rules. It would also provide more information to users irrespective of whether they are able to sign into Primo (e.g. users not affiliated to the institution will be unable to sign in) and makes it clearer and easier for staff to explain to customers why a particular item can/cannot be borrowed.

    This would be really good, not being able to see the loan information does cause problems for users and queries for staff.

    This would be very useful for Primo 5 too!
