Library Card page
I think it would more user-focused if the "Library Card" dashboard listed all of the requests and loans in one spot, regardless of the lending library. Many users are unaware of which library they've requested an item through - it would be nice if there was only one dashboard for patrons to check on the status of everything in one spot.
Yes, this makes sense. Especially since our patrons may not know what specific branches are named.

For institutions with many libraries, it is crucial to be able to view items in this way. The current presentation will lead to massive amounts of confusion and frustration.

This seems like a good enhancement for Primo VE for libraries using fulfillment networks.

I, with my CUNY colleagues, emphatically endorse this important improvement/fix to the dashboard. Without it, our consortial borrowing and lending is less than fully functional.
Connie Williams commented
Yes, please fix the screen so we can see which Library has requested an item and the loans in the same area. It is less frustrating.

I wholeheartedly support this idea.
In the meantime, would it be possible to at least show an indicator next to each library? At the moment, unless you're in that library, it looks like there are no loans or requests anywhere. Giving the patron a hint about where loans/requests may exist would be a vast improvement. (See attached for a mock-up.)

Please fix the Library Card so all books/items are listed together. The name of the lending school could be next to the name of the item.
