  1. Rapido to parse all volume formats for multivolume works

    Currently, when requesting volumes of multivolume works, the Rapido tile can only parse the following volume formats from the item description:
     
    "3" (digits only)
    "v.3" (no space)
    "v. 3" (with space)
     
    This affects the Refine Offer function: if the patron inputs a string that Rapido cannot parse (for example, "XII", "Jan", "Bd. 3" as written in the item description), it disregards that volume information. This usually gives a positive result (terms are displayed disregarding the volume's availability), places the request on title level (whole multivolume work) without linking the wanted volume (item) to the Rapido request. In such…

  2. Item set to unavailable as soon as requested via Rapido

    Currently, an item linked to a lending request is only set to unavailable after it has been shipped. When the lending request still has status Being processed, the linked item remains available.
    Consequently, when several requests placed in a short time-frame on the same title are placed, the algorithm attributes all of them to the same lending library, while copies from other libraries are available.

    If the item would be made unavailable as soon as it is requested, following requests would calculate different partners for which the items are available. Requests on the same title would then be better dispatched…

  3. External ID number should change if the partner library changes

    Rapido keeps the old ILL number (External ID) when a borrowing request is not filled and moves on to another partner. The Ext ID number should be unique between a pair of partners. Right now you can have a Rapido request with a RapidILL number, a British Library request with a RapidILL number etc. Because each partner type has a different set of conditions (ex. allowance of renewals), each time you have a different type of partner, there should be a new Ext ID number.

  4. Limits for RapidILL scan from print requests

    Since all Rapido scan requests are converted to RapidILL requests and thus have a 24-hour service commitment, we’ve been noticing an unmanageable workload on Mondays with requests coming in over the weekends. Prior to dropping OCLC we could balance our workload by doing the urgent requests first and the less urgent requests another day, but now all of our most time-consuming requests are also urgent.
    Possible solution: Limiting the number of scan from print requests that can be assigned to one library at one time.
